Hiya Markus,

        If you're using 1.2 with ASYNC and select(), then I believe that the
timeouts were set too high in the select() statement. Under very low loads,
the async stuff pretty much takes over connections, meaning that select()
has no active FD's to wait on. This means it times out the full period (1s)
and so you get very low transfer rates. You need to set the select timeout
to around 50ms (or even lower if you want higher rates under low loads).



P.S. beta12 WILL still crash heavily, beta13 has the ASYNC stabilising code.
