Limiting connections to a certain server doesn't work

I'd like to download 2 files at the same time from different servers, but to every server I have only 1 available connection, so I want to limit the number of connection to each of the servers to 1 (so when a filelist from one server runs out, the Client won't continue to download 2 files - now from the same server).
I set "Maximum simultaneous transfers" to 2, as I want to download 2 files at the same time.
Under Site manager I set server #1's "Transfer settings/Limit number of simultaneous connections" to 1, and I do the same to Server #2.
In the queue, I have 30+ files from Server #1, and have only 1 file from server #2, in this order.
Starting the queue will start to download 2 files from Server #1 :-(
I have to set that single file's priority to high or highest to make the Client do it right. But after that single file got downloaded, the Client tries to start a second connection on Server #1.
My opinion is that the Transfer settings are not taken into account, or they wont override the Max. transfer property.
I tried the following situation:
- 1 server
- 30+ files
- Maximum simultaneous connection set to 5
- the Server's "Limit number of simultaneous connections" set to 1
In this scenario - if the latter property overrode the former - only 1 file should be downloading at the same time. But this starts 5 download attempt.
