I find this a problem myself, and I think the number of blocks to
bufffer should be at least 1000. The NT service client on the PII
266 does a block every 7 minutes, so I have to update every day. I
do it by hand because the fetch and flush fail more often than not.
No, I do not want to run a proxy server. I don't need one, I don't
want one. I just want the client to hold more blocks and to
communicate more efficiently.

Agreed. This should be fixed too. I use the NT service client, and
I was amazed at how fast the regular gui client transmitted blocks
because the service is so slow.
