OK, maybe you do have a problem then :)

Yep, sorry for the lurkonly. Jeff's working on it. 
About the CTRL-BREAK, in Unix SIGALRM does a serverconnection and
SIGHUP does an ini-reload. 
ini-reload resets the buffertresholds (hope I spelled it right this
time!). The signalhandler for win32 only responds to CTRL_BREAK_EVENT
to do a Reload and a Forceconnect. This could be split up, indeed.

The intelligent buffers are implemented because there were a lot of
"not so bright" users that accidentely buffered LOTS (many thousands)
of blocks and then come asking how to get rid of these because it was
not the purpose to buffer so much.
