Because these are theoretical maximums. Very minor other issues
(eg some packet reordering, 5-10ms of jitter, a single lost packet
every now and then) will easily cut this in half. 130ms link at
95% of max (about the best you do on a clean link) would be 59k/sec,
a 100ms link with 10ms jitter would drop to around 50% of max, or
40k/sec, or 33% slower.
I bet setting the windows to 32k on both sides fixes his problem.
