Then it's probably the same problem as when Ales tested it yesterday.
We're going to take a look at it today, and report the progress. I
have my suspicions for couple of things..
But it did work for Kuba under Linux, and it works for me.

Yep, I can try that out. But the speed is probably limited by the
server, but we'll see.. I'm looking for another server anyway.

Okay, weird, does this happen to anyone else?

Yep, that's on the TODO list :)
