	I concur to this.
	I designed a way to get more than 50 blocks in a buffer (by
concatenating multiple buffers) but as soon as the client has processed
more then 50 blocks, it stops working and tries to report the blocks. And
since I'm not connected to the internet it enters into an endless loop of
"Network::Open Error - Sleeping for 15 seconds" errors. Thus not even
finishing to process the buffered blocks.
	So what I now do is empty the buff-out file as soon as it
contains more than 40 blocks.
