As a workaround, you might try setting a --bwlimit, as Wayne suggested here:

If a low --bwlimit setting doesn't fix the problem, I would be curious
if a tweak to the way --bwlimit is implemented (e.g., moving the
sleep_for_bwlimit call *before* the write in writefd_unbuffered, or
perhaps lowering bwlimit_writemax) would help.  Please tell me if you
are interested in experimenting with this.
