Having installed this, you can use wget with the --post-file= option to send files without size restriction (though they need to be percent-encoded, and binary files probably won't work). Curl is available in the same way, but it has so many library dependencies when you try to install it that I gave up on it.
I can send you curl if you want to. I took the time to get all the dependencies (but yeah, it took some time :P)

The only alternative is to keep the sync() as a separate menu item; it works, but it means you first have to select the download menu item (and wait til it finishes, without receiving a notification when it is), then select the sync menu item.
Not using kobo.com myself, so can't say anything about that. I havn't tried the newer versions of the plugin (been real busy), but the one I have blocks perfectly well. When I run my sync.sh nickel hangs (Sync entry in plugin menu statys "activated") until sync.sh is done. Chaining also works fine. Are you sure you're not using wget& or something similar in your script?
