thanks corey!

i assumed (foolishly) that if i removed the rate-line it would use the  
full bandwidth available (yeah, missed the "default is.."-bit)

what's the reason of rate being limited to 700000K (683.6M)?
(guessing no harddrive can cope with that (or more) anyway, just curious :)

guess i shouldn't question why the default is 250 KB/s.. ?
