[QNetwork] issues with files served by PHP

I am facing a very strange problem with the QNetworkAccessManager.
I want to use it to download a .exe file from my website.
With a direct link like http://www.strangeplanet.fr/work/umwp-autochanger/UMWP_Autochanger_1.8_Setup.exe it works perfectly
But with a link to OwnCloud share script (PHP) http://files.strangeplanet.fr/public.php?service=files&t=bdcdd1a762c6fcc6416f0fcae57a0e4e&download there is problem:
the download is well performed until 94% (says downloadProgress signal) but then I have to wait 40-50 seconds until the finished signal is emitted and the last bytes can be read from the buffer.
But the problem doesn't come from my code, you can reproduce this issue with the network/download code example.
I did some network sniffing with Wireshark while downloading both files from my browser and can't see anything special (I might have forgot something obviously, there is so many data).
I looked at the code of OwnCloud and there is really nothing special, some HTTP headers to force the download and a fread loop (for info, this technique is used over core readfile function because of this bug https://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=61636)
Thanks for your consideration
