A few months ago the keyserver was not big enough to hold all blocks.
Instead it could only contain 4 subspaces.
This resulted in blocks being recycled after ONE MONTH: subspace no. 5
could only be started when subspace no. 1 was completely terminated.
At that time everybody was advised to throw inbuffers away after one month
and to get fresh ones.
I have no idea if the master keyserver has been expanded since then.
This is only something I remember from this mailing list, a small
confirmation from the d.net folks would be appreciated.
