Appears to be variance in Filezilla allocating the correct download bandwidth especially when downloading multiple files

I love Filezilla and till this latest version it has been excellent at downloading multiple files (for me it downloads 2 simultaneously) and while doing so maxing the bandwidth and splitting it pretty much evenly between the files.
This latest version seems to occasionally (say 5 out of every 10 loads of the program) either (1) pick up only a fraction of the available bandwidth for single file downloads, and/or (2) allocate the bandwidth unevenly between multiple files, e.g. 1 will get 300-600 KiB/s with the second getting 4.1MiB/s.
The workaround for the above is to right click on one of the downloading files, and uncheck 'Process Queue'. If I then wait for like 10 secs, the bandwidth seems to be allocated correctly (2.1MiB/s to each file).
NOTE: this has happened over several days, and after restarts of both the FTP server supplying the files, the modem, and computer running Filezilla. I did not notice it in previous versions. It therefore seems like it could be some kind of low priority issue.
Thanks for a great product and for any help with this issue.
