Portability between Linux, Windows and Mac OS X is biggest consideration of this project and I thought Smalltalk(Squeak or GST) might be best solution for this work. But after some testing even Smalltalk is great environment/platform, this kind of task might not be appropriate for it. Thank you, if you have any suggestion or fix please let me know.

It's a little sad, because this is just a portability problem and it's exactly the case where user input can be most useful (remember that your input led to a dramatic improvement in multi-byte character set support, for example). Unfortunately, until I get a decent Windows machine there is not much that I can do about this.

Do you have a clue of where the 100% load goes (e.g. what happens if you type Ctrl-C?).

I just responded to Swazoo mailing list and the reason is probably the
same on all Smalltalks: generating a lot of small garbage, so that GC
has a plenty of work. We need to optimize POST streaming parser then an
upload performance should be similar to the download one.

Paolo, by the way, did you do some benchmarks on GST already?
