Rate limited, reducing sleep to 0s

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

Pacer increases sleep but then immediately reduces it to 0s.

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)

rclone v1.53.2
- os/arch: linux/amd64
- go version: go1.15.3

Which OS you are using and how many bits (eg Windows 7, 64 bit)

Description: Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS
Release: 18.04
Codename: bionic
Linux nephele 5.6.3-050603-generic #202004080837 SMP Wed Apr 8 08:39:44 UTC 2020 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)

Google Drive

The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

/usr/bin/rclone copy /data/ gdrive:/ -vv --config /home/nephele/.config/rclone/rclone.conf --drive-stop-on-upload-limit --exclude=Media/** --copy-links --transfers=4 --checkers=6 --stats-log-level=NOTICE --log-file=/var/log/rclone.log --track-renames --fast-list

Do you have more of the log? It normally goes back to normal once it's working without any issues.

It's just more of the same-

pacer: low level retry x/10 (403 error)
pacer: rate limited, increasing sleep to x.x (1-16 seconds)
pacer: reducing sleep to 0s

all the in same second

Can you share the full log?
