I'm not sure if this will be source of Your problem, but I'm sure You are
footshooting with default size of pipe and queues, which is 50 slots.

With 128kbit/s (as showed in previous mail, BTW, this is 16KB/s) transmitting
of 50 full size packets (with MTU 1500B) requires:
50*1.5KB/16KBpS = ~4,68 seconds
This will kill TCP throughput.

Try adding something like `queue 5KBytes' parameter both to pipe and queue
