Preupgrade did not "resume" like it promised

I used preupgrade from Fedora 12 to 13 today. Read all the documentation. It ran from 08:30 to 17:00 today, and had almost finished downloading the packages (3/4 through).
I saw a message at the bottom:
If you quit right now, your downloads will continue next time you run this assistant.
I tried that. When I restarted the program, it prompted:
Do you want to resume your upgrade to Fedora 13 (Goddard)?
The whole process started from the beginning. I'm not looking forward to another 7.5 hours, so I'm planning to file a bug report, then strangle kittens.
