That is what I was saying. BTW, how did you have an input buffer of 56,
but an output buffer of only 50?? 

I think the input and output logic is separate. The input buffer gets new
keys when it is empty and the output buffer sends out completed keys when
it is full. Neither one knows what the other one is doing. When the block
of 50 is sent out, no new ones are retrieved because there are still keys
waiting in the buff-in file.
