Currently the maximum speed limits for the bars are indicated using KiB/s,
which I assume is kibibyte per second. Even though this seems to be technically
correct ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KiB ), unaware users will be confused by
the "strange" notation since most users are used to KB as in 'kilobyte'. Adding
a small tooltip to the 'maximum incoming/outgoing' input fields would help
clarify it for users. It could be along teh lines: "Input maximum speed in
kibibytes per second".
