Thanks for noticing, it was a *BAD* bug in the TLDownload.pm code that
disabled all persistent connections!!! Crazy not even me realized it.
I forgot dereferencing a variable (the ->enable was internally not
using $self->{'enabled'} but only $self{'enabled'}, which is wrong)

I also added some debugging now.
