CC to talk, because may be if general interest.

This is by design, although I was just a bit lazy and unsure how to
integrate an option to have the old "merge to current layer" best.

Just click on the "Merge down" button in the layer dialog when the newly
downloaded layer is selected.

This will merge the selected layer with the one below and give you
exactly the old behavior of "download to current layer".

Because of it's so easy to achieve the old way, I've postponed the
implementation of an explicit checkbox. ;)

Ciao, Imi.
