So I left it and moved on with my life. Still siting there this morning,

So I did a suspend/resume on this Thinkpad, in lieu of killing the
process, and it exited. Total output is below:

loading device information before the update...
rebooting in download mode...
download mode detected
downloading cwe image:
(38.3 MB)...
(-*----) 02.8%
error: error downloading image: couldn't write in session: error
writing: only 1024000/1024000 bytes written

The good news is that I did not brick the card: it works fine.
