I tried this out by altering the .ini file for 2^28 sized blocks after 
the buffer
was full of 2^30 sized blocks. After the change the client slowed down 
about 10 kk/s. It seems that the client (that is - at least the OS/2 one) 
can handle block sizes different from the size specified in the .ini 
but does so at a cost. 

Otherwise the client seemed to be working fine.
