I allowed the bridge bandwidth decay
over a couple of days back to 8KBbyte,
which seems to be the floor.  "Fast"
flag was dropped.

After about a day that way, the bridge/relay
daemon started running an occasional
"bandwidth self-test", the rate went
up to 60KB and the "fast" flag returned.

Appears as though the self-check here is
looking for a minimum level and not
trying to push to maximum useable
bandwidth, but this is only a
casual observation.

Six days in and no "stable" flag,
but I'm hoping to see it in the next
couple of days.
