This is caused by the ph_start.time value being 0 for a 0-length file
(it's only initialized when the first hunk of data comes through for a
file). I just checked-in a fix for this into CVS.
Interestingly, when pushing data, no progress was output at all for an
empty file. Since this is inconsistent, I changed the code to produce
progress in both directions.

Because an elapsed time of 0 means that any data that arrived, arrived
very quickly. Setting the rate to 0 when the elapsed time is 0 is the
opposite of what we need -- an infinite data rate. I like the idiom of
changing the elapsed time from 0 to 1 so that it divides safely into the
quantity of sent data, and thus gives us a non-0 rate (if any data was
Thanks for pointing out the weird output!
