Either way is possible. However, due to the way the download is set up on
gluck, jigdo-lite may sooner or later fail if you continue to download the
old images.

(This possibility of failure is not ideal... :-/ It is present because the
jigdo "fallback" directory at
http://gluck.debian.org/cdimage/snapshot/cd/i386/Debian/ appears to have
been wiped the moment the new weekly images were made available. Ideally, 
the previous week's fallback files should linger in the dir for a few more 

You *can* reuse the data you have already downloaded, by loop-mounting the 
.iso.tmp image and passing the mounted directory to jigdo-lite's "Files to 
scan" prompt. See 
http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/Debian-Jigdo/updatingyourimage.html for details.
