That's one of Martin Méoks' (I'm nearly 100% sure I spelled the last

when the Fyodor was revamping a lot of other functionality. It's quite
possible it was just forgotten, but I seem to remember at least one user
having problems with it not properly detecting some hosts when it's a
router that does the limiting (as opposed to the final destination of
the packet).

Interesting.  I only have one data point right now, but that point includes 
a cisco router performing the rate limiting (the target is behind the 
router) and it detected everything just fine...

I would be really interested in other thoughts, because the performance hit 
of 3.81 versus 2.54BETA31 is really big for this scan (running with -T4).
