Original description:
While running when an interwiki dump file does not exists the script properly saves it and you can use -continue option to restart. When it exists it will not be saved and the bot restarts using old interwiki dump so when the previous run has started.

When a dumpfile still exists the dumpf will be saved to the existing one and the bot takes the alphabetical last pages to -continue. This could cause to continue like a previous run after processing all pages above.

No, it starts from the first line of dump, which was processed long time ago. In my example when a bot was editing pages beginnig with "R" and dump file entries where from J to R, with -continue it started from J.

If the dump file contains entries with J they will be fetched first. Continuing is/should be done with the last entry of the file. Should be confirmed.
