Description steve.stogner 2013-02-15 15:42:44 UTC
In a Maven project, expand the Dependencies node.
Right-click a jar and Download Sources.
In my case, it hung at 25% for a while, so I decided to cancel.
"Are you sure you want to cancel Downloading Sources?" -> clicked Yes.
NetBeans did not remove the Downloading Sources task from the status bar... still displaying 25%.
I tried to download sources for commons-validator-1.4.0.jar if that's helpful:

the maven library performing the download (maven wagon via apache httpcommons) doesn't allow explicit cancelling of transfer, we only cancel the transport in a transfer listener by throwing exception. That's suboptimal in cases when the  transfer is stuck because then we don't get any listener events.

Just updating: Still present in IDE 8.1 RC2 (Build nbms-and-javadoc-3603-on-20151013).
