SFTP very slow

I am using Filezilla 2.2.19a on winXP SP2+all patches
I am connecting to a remote Solaris server.
I am trying to transfer a 80MB binary zip file from the
remote solaris server to the local drive.
My internet connection speed is (ADSL) 512KB/s down
My transfer speeds using FileZilla max out at
approximately 21KB/s using the SFTP protocol.
I repeated the transfer using WinSCP 3.80 (SFTP) for
the same remote Solaris server and same file and was
able to get about 38KB/s
I then repeated the transfer using scp from a Suse
Linux 9.1 box to the same Solaris server and same file
and was able to get about 47 KB/s
The test file was about 80MB.
Any ideas why Filezilla is so slow on sftp transfers?
