What is the range of allowable values of upload and download rate limits?

My vDSL link can do 9 Mb/s up and 32 Mb/s down, and I want to limit the BOINC traffic to, say, half of those values. I went to the computing preferences web page and attempted to set suitable values there, but my download limit triggered an out-of-range error.

I can set the upload limit in my local preferences, but it will be overwritten next time I load the web preferences. The download limit is silently discarded and left at 0.
