#1197 closed Bug (duplicate)

Transmission bandwidth caps have become very imprecise

Description

In the pre-1.3 days, when I set my outbound bandwidth cap to a specific speed, T was very good at sticking to limit, rarely exceeded it, and on the rare occasions when it did, only by 1 or 2 KBps.

These days (and this includes nightlies up to the current, 6529), T will frequently and unpredictably exceed the cap by up to 50% (!) for non-short periods of time.

This is very, very ungood.

Eventually, T will settle back down and remain largely centered on the defined cap, but the spikes where it absorbs bandwidth well in excess of what it's been told are increasingly difficult to tolerate, as they wreak havoc upon other applications.

(I currently believe that the outbound bandwidth-use display is accurate based on the throughput effects observed as being inflicted upon other apps; I don't think this is a display bug in the UI.)
