It seems that the block size reported by the proxy is always 2^28.
Basically if a client requests a 2^30 block, the proxy sends it four 2^28
blocks, since 2^30 is four times the size of 2^28. That also is the reason
that sometimes a client will flush one block, and the out-buffer on the
proxy increases by four. I suppose that a 2^32 block is simply 16
sequential 2^28 blocks.

I set all of the client I installed to 2^28 blocks, just to make it easier
to deal with.
