Since --bwlimit depends upon sleep(1 second), I repeated the experiment with a file that was 383 Megabyte so that when I am running unthrottled it takes significantly longer than a second (ie. ~50 seconds) to complete. I get the same bi-modal behavior but with different values for 4000 and 4001 respectively. The fact that the break point stays fixed isnt intuitive (to me at least).
