Yep, 300-304 uses a sort of "file-system"-like buffer. Shrinkage of
those buffers is not implemented. These new buffers have advantages
when using really large buffers (read fullproxies), because it
doesn't have to load all buffers into mem. 

But since a lot of people on this list found for a pproxy this was
overkill, Jeff reverted the buffer-code to the 28x code beginning
with version 306.

When you have flushed a 306 outbuffer it will be like 8 bytes or so.
