I apologize for my irate comments.  They were the result of 
frustration born from the extreme tedium of isolating the issue.

Suspect that the problem is present on all platforms, but like 
some that I've seen it's possible it doesn't produce the same 
effect on every architecture.  Seen ones that trap on Sparc but 
not on x86, and vice-versa.

Also the 4GB has to travel before a session expires.  Might be 
rare in practice.  It just barely passes the threshold with a
dedicated transfer running at 1.5MBPS and a default keylife

Since there is an effective work-around, not in a hurry for a 
fix--never was.  Just would like to see it get fixed some day.
