I am not familiar with FlashGet either, but if it does use random ports, 
you could always assign the same IP to that client via DHCP and then 
limit the bandwidth to that person all the time, no matter what 
application they are running.

I also believe you can set up the shaper to share bandwith evenly across 
all network hosts by default, which may also be an option.
