OK, that's alarming. Perhaps uu.se (which hosts ftp.gromacs.org) got
hit hard by the downloads and they throttle (some) connections. Note
mine, though, as you can see I got a 28.6 M/s average download speed
(but that's of course an unfair comparison).
Not sure how to check whether the downloads are really being
throttled, but perhaps we should use an alternative host or torrent.
