Yes, which can be a problem for users firing large mirrors in background without watching them. The new release now has a security that prevent people (generally beginners) from using too much bandwidth, AND using potentially dangerous options (such as using too many connections)

Darn. But fortunately most beginners shoud not be hit by the problem, as they generally use the GUI release (which already has securities enabled)

Anyway, the new release should be available in few months or so, as we now have a faster release cycle :p
