In this case, steps seem to be a more accurate measure of where the checkpointing actually occurred. Before and after the pause:
15:45:13:WU01:FS00:0xa4:Completed 1225000 out of 2500000 steps (49%)
16:23:59:WU01:FS00:0xa4:Completed 1250000 out of 2500000 steps (50%)
17:33:06:WU01:FS00:0xa4:Completed 1246750 out of 2500000 steps (49%)
17:38:09:WU01:FS00:0xa4:Completed 1250000 out of 2500000 steps (50%)

So the timered checkpoint actually occurred at 100% * 1246750 / 2500000 == 49.87%. The log doesn't show percentage fractions, which can cause one to misjudge the amount of work that got redone. When one works with integers, 100 * 1246750 / 2500000 does evaluate to 49.
