The solution is to clear() the 'parts' vector on each init(),

I hope this fix doesn't disturb a rather odd but
quite useful characteristic of pan: when there's a
crash and pan is in the midst of doing something (e.g.,
downloading), when you invoke pan again, it continues
where it left off, as it didn't even know that something
bad happened.
No, it absolutely doesn't disturb this functionality. More than that, it fixes another obscure bug where /wrong/ segments would be sometimes downloaded after restart (resulting in the wrong binary file).

This has been tested and appears to work fine.
