[W] White Pine 10a2/transmission caps!!

I was using White Pine 10a1 because it was the only version that worked with
the Quick-Cam for Windoze. It was working fine on my Toshiba Pentium laptop
on the ethernet connnected to a 128-K T1. I had to dial down my
transmission max to 12Kbps to send reasonable video and audio to someone
with a 28.8 modem.

WP 10a1 time-bombed out on Dec 31, so I downloaded 10a2 last week. It's
real snazzy but the transmission caps don't seem to do a !@#$% thing. It
always says "100 max" below my local video window no matter what I dial the
transmission max cap setting to. And lo and behold, it sends at 80-100
Kbps. My picture comes out all chopped up at the other end (presumably from
lost packets) and audio comes similarly all chopped up. We had audio
working perfectly with 10a1.

What happened??!! Is anyone else having this problem? Anyone know about it??
