Yeah, it certainly mangled the original mail when quoting it! <g>

Makes no difference - it *doesn't fail* for network I/O (it completes fine) 
- it just dumps a single line to stderr at the start, which says:

mbuffer: warning: unable to set socket buffer size: No buffer space 

Adding '-m64' didn't get rid of that, or any of the compile time warnings...

I can live with the warning (better than it not working at all! :) - unless 
it might be doing something nasty (like messing up network performance - 
though it seems to be getting close to wire speed for transfers).
