I am curently testing the client under Ubuntu 11.04 64 bits.

I'd like to know if it's normal that percentage isn't growing at constant rate?
After 5 seconds, it's already at 14.814%, but remain at this percentage for like 5 minutes, it increases at 30.120%, then at 43.373%, etc.

That would be great if the progress would increase at constant rate.

It's normal. I'm taking the progress from the dnetc client by it's buffer levels. And since it writes them at packet level (usually 7-8 packets in a wu) there's a certain jumpiness in the progress.

If it bothers people too much, then I guess I could add time based progress between packet writes. Something like "best case is that it should now be done 20% of packet 3" and report progress accordingly. This would smooth the progress of progress percentage but is not based on knowing "real progress".
