Android app floods FTP server with requests

The Android app seems to hammer FTP servers with too many concurrent connections.
Therefore the app is only able to index a few dozen files before the DDoS protection of my SOHO router kicks in, which can'T be circumvented.
See the attached screenshot.
Am I alone with this?

Is my assumption right, that the mobile version of foobar2000 is using rclone to do the FTP heavylifting?
If so, this could be pretty easily fixed thru a configuration value that could be added to the settings of the app:
Code: [Select]
--ftp-concurrency

Maximum number of FTP simultaneous connections, 0 for unlimited.

Properties:

    Config: concurrency
    Env Var: RCLONE_FTP_CONCURRENCY
    Type: int
    Default: 0
