          Gnapster (Linux)
          * move in queue (only allows 1 file to be added) drag.
          overall great program.

          speed up re-connect time

          if (!safe_exit(ci))
          ci->reconnect_timeout = TIMEOUT_ADD(100, reconnect_cb, stab);

          speed up retry (download queue)

          if (!user_info.conf[AUTOCANCEL]) {
          real->timeout_tag = TIMEOUT_ADD(700,remote_queue_
          check, real);

          Of course there are plenty of OpenNap servers that you can use with non-Windows clients...
