[tor-dev] Fast flag assigned to slow relay

I notice that some relays with very low bandwidth (e.g., 2 KB/s) in the
consensus have 'Fast' flag. However, the definition of 'Fast' in
dir-sepc.txt is that a router is 'Fast' if it is active, and its bandwidth
is either in the top 7/8ths for known active routers or at least some
minimum (20KB/s until, and 100KB/s after that). For example,
the relay named "PotatoPlace" has only 5KB/s but is marked as a "Fast" node
if we check that in http://torstatus.blutmagie.de/

Does anybody can please explain this?
