I'm speaking from empirical observation of what rapidgator does.

their rate limiting algorithm is broken and the larger the file the more broken it gets over time. i.e. they send it bursts and the delta in time between bursts grows as more and more of the file is transferred. before, when you hard coded a 2 minute http read timout, it would always fail after about 12-13GB of transffered data as the delta between bursts would trigger JD2's http read timeout. setting it to 5minute (as you allowed me now), enabled it to complete, but in the process I documented 3+ minute deltas between bursts. It downloaded at an average of 100kbps, but especially at the end, it was more like download 20MB of data in a quick burst, then wait 3+ minutes without any data downloaded and then repeat.
