Cool.  :)

I borrowed one of them, and I think there is a situation where the
receive logic can get a few packets behind.  For instance, if I ping
-i 0.1 a local host, I can type this message, although with lag.  If I
stop the ping, the TCP stream seems to hang.  Start the ping again,
and it once again works...
