The last request just ask for (maxbuffer-what you have)
So although the last request is still logged as
"Sending request iter 64", you get only like 40 to get exactly to the
BTW, in the new version (that will appear shortly), the proxy
overshoots a little, so it will get a lot of 64 iter blocks until
1024. This is done so the proxy inbuffer does not have split blocks,
so clients really get the iters they request (no more 6*2^28 if you
ask for a 2^31 !!)
