I did extensive testing of this last night. Traffic Shaping does indeed
work on 1.11 over a bridge. But you have to check the box in
Advanced -> Enable Filtering Bridge
I was able to throttle my 1.5M DSL bandwidth down to 20k using the traffic
shaper over this bridge.
However, I couldn't get bridging to work at all under 1.2b3. YMMV.
