The client has a sanity check which forbids to download
more work than worth 3 days. For the proxy, there exists an
expertmode option to override this check, but I don't know
about the client.

A workaround is to fetch as much as possible, rename the
buff-in file, fetch again and import the renamed file. This
way you should get work worth 6 days. Repeat it for every
additional 3 days you need.
