i had thought about that but supposedly the client has internal defaults where you don't have to set "additional buffer checking" 

what i used to do was to set the clients to flush the out buffers when there were one or two results in them but i got complaints 
(indirectly) that that was causing additional bandwidth consumption on dnet's servers so i stopped it...

i seem to remember something about the clients having similar code to the perproxy in that they could determine what the best buffer 
settings were based on how long it too them to process workunits and that they would adjust accordingly... i've noted that they seem 
to be gathering ~20 workunits but i have seen times when there were more than 20 workunits in the out buffer and a full in buffer... 
i definitely flushed them, then...

they are but i can't do that for various reasons ;)
