Well, I came up with a fix.  I've probably broken something by
doing this, but at least for now, it's working well.

In src/HTAlert.c is the following code:

     * Optimal refresh time:  every 0.2 sec, use interpolation.  Transfer
     * rate is not constant when we have partial content in a proxy, so
     * interpolation lies - will check every second at least for sure.
    if (now >= last + 0.2)
        renew = 1;
    if (((bytes - bytes_last) > (transfer_rate / 5)) || (now != last)) {
        renew = 1;
        bytes_last += (transfer_rate / 5);  /* until we got next second */

So I changed that line near to middle from 0.2 to 2 :

    if (now >= last + 2)

Now the download report happens only once per 2 seconds.  I can live
with that.
