So, the question then becomes, when the node is clearly receiving
more packets than it's supposed to, why is it taking so long (many
-- I never actually waited to see if the flood, which consumed my
entire connection's 80KiB/sec capacity, would eventually subside)
for the rate to stabilize? How much time does the node give it's
peers to stabilize their traffic, before it disconnects from them?
And does the node accept packets from peers it is not currently
connected to? (Ie. say we give our peers 1minute to get their s***
straight, and then disconnect from them, I should see the flood
end in 1 minute?)
Mostly because development capability is limited by available
people and testing capabilities - without a dedicated lab setup
it's very hard to test bandwidth limiting, so the only real test
is on the network.

I'm sure fixing this is on the list somewhere, but we either need
to pitch in and code it or wait for someone else to have time.
I'm curious, though, as to what the node currently does. (To bring
us back to the original question of this thread.) (Yes, I should
just look at the code myself.) Surely it does something like I just
described above? And surely that's a simple thing? (When you refer
to testing, you're probably referring to fine-tunning the above
parameters to maximize efficiency ... which is all good ... except
even without such testing, I don't see why it should take many
minutes for flow to stabilize -- unless our grace-period for
overflowing nodes is many minutes long?)
Please describe the formula through which to calculate the speed of
the data that you need to send to your peer, which has 19 other peers
(and you have no knowledge about the speed with which they are

for i in output-bandwidth
   for j in list-of-peers
     if<j said it was ok to send stuff over within the last minute>
       send<remaining-output-bandwidth, weighted for particular peer>

I played around with some Basic programming (back before VB). I even got C++ to say 'Hello, World' to me a time or two. So don't think I'm speaking as a pro when I say, I be guessing it ain't that simple, bro.
