port version:

(but also seen in at least the two previous versions)

If I set the speed limit to 'Low' or 'Medium' the program starts to behave badly.
It seems, as I can see in the program log window, that it sends truncated request string to the server and it get a lot of 'bad request' or get disconnected after few bytes.
This behaviour stops, and the program starts to work correctly, as soon as I set the limit to 'Unlimited'.
