Autoupdate write premissions

If autoupdate is on (default option) and if it does not have write permissions it downloads new binaries in loop (every xx minutes). On my windows machine it generated bunch of temp files (could eat up storage), on my linux machine it just downloaded, but could not write temp files. Both cases resulted in addition bandwidth consumption. I think you should set it to try just once or increase interval to days.

The interval is 12 hours as far as I remember. You can adjust it in the config.

Still, we should probably not keep downloading and creating temp files if the location is not writeable…

Agree, worth a ticket on github.
