Link start not well controlled (at least for depositfiles)
|Category:||Controlling||Estimated time:||4.00 hours|

When I started downloads, one of my packages was open and I saw 45 Connecting... messages.
A minute ago, I opened the same package and found that over 100 depositfiles links were waiting with individual timers.
This is with Maximum simultaneous downloads per host set to 1, Maximum Connections for file set to 1, and Maximum Downloads set to 3.
A while ago, I had a package with around 250 ImageVenue links (an image host, not a file host). I meant to force download on one of the links, but accidentally performed force download on the package. All 250 links tried to connect at the same time (and about 100 succeeded and download the image). I know force download allows ignoring Maximum Simultaneous Downloads Per Host, but there should be some limit.
