Hi phobos,

Did you leave the old options BandwidthRate and BandwidthBurst?
Personally I completely removed them. If I set them, it works like
before, if I remove them the bandwidth increases drastically.
For example :
with the options
BandwidthRate 50 KB
BandwidthBurst 60 KB  -> download rate  : ~50KB/s  upload Rate : ~50KB/s

With the following options only :
RelayBandwidthRate 50 KB
RelayBandwidthBurst 60 KB
I obtain download rate ~95KB/s upload rate : ~95KB which is pretty close
to the upload limit of my line.

I don't touch any more the configuration during a few times to see how
that evolves.
