 1. Initiate a file-transfer from the sender XO.

 2. "Accept" the invitation at the receiver XO.

 3. File gets transmitted (almost instanataneously) (note that it must be a
 file of small size). The file is also seen received in the journal at the
 receiving end.

 4. However, at the receiving or the sending end, there is no "Dismiss"
 option (that signifies end-of-transfer).

 5. Left with no choice, the receiver is forced to click the "Cancel"

 6. The received file in the journal, gets deleted.

 Again note, that this happens only for files of small size, and that too

 of Megabytes.)

 This (intermittent behaviour for small files) occurs on both os883.img and

 Also, see screenshots.
