Issue with bwlimit after resuming a partial transfer due to a communication break

I am using rsync version 3.0.7. My rsync server is running on the cloud.

I have set the bwlimit to 10 i.e. 10 KBps. When I try to sync files the
bwlimit is as what is
set. I have enabled storage of partial files. When a communication break
causes rsync to
time out during a transfer the partial file is stored in the partial
directory. I then try rsync
again when the link is up. At this point I see that the bwlimit of 10KBps is
not followed.
rsync transfers the data as fast as possible.

I tried the latest nightly build and the issue is seen there too. Has anyone
come across a
similar issue.
