Depending on how much effort you want to go to in order to fix the problem -
you could resolve it by writing a CGI script that handled the download
requests. It'd probably end up being a couple lines of perl, just to send
the right headers, seek to the right point of the file properly (for 
resumes).. Its just a Rewrite rule in your apache config to do it
transparently too.

This is a php script, not sure how well php handles large file support.
