The unix personal proxies have a block count per-connection limit of 50.
The win32 gui personal proxy and the full proxies do not have a block count
per-connection limit, but instead have a maximum connection-duration limit
of 2 minutes.  You should perhaps consider trying to not buffer so many
blocks, or perhaps flush more frequently.  These connection limits may be
raised in the future if others indicate that this is indeed a critical
problem for them.
