If you have the time to spend, it would be very useful if
you could attach a debugger to the process and have a poke
around in the connection and buffer objects. My guess is
that something is still wrong in the bufferring code, but
I haven't had a chance to look at it in a while, and I'm
unfortunately not going to be able to spend much time on
it any time soon.

Thanks -- now fixed.

They argue with umpires, they cheer when they've won.
And they practice beforehand, which ruins the fun!
