I'm currently staying at a place with a slow net connection, where it
takes several hours to download texlive-20140525-texmf.tar.xz (1.74 GB).
Several times in a row, the download has failed with:

timed out after 3600 seconds of silence

Finally I decided to use 'wget' to download it, so that I could resume
partial transfers.  I have the entire file now, but all of my attempts

I also attempted to add it using 'add-to-store', which exited the
process ungracefully without printing an error message:

Any ideas?  Does adding files to the store entail mapping them into
