[Cake] WAN ingress rate with concurrent downloads

Hi All,

I noticed that the ingress rate on the WAN interface as reported by bmon or bwm-ng does not reflect the setting in cake (on ifb ingress or on LAN egress) when one of the hosts is using bittorrent or when there are more than 3 concurrent downloads on a 3300kbit/s bandwidth (router behind cable modem). With 1-2 concurrent downloads (i.e. connections) the ingress rate reported on WAN matches the limit set in cake. The same thing happens with HTB, TBF, or the police action. Any ideas why?
