Hi Karl,

Thanks for the reply.
As I read the documentation, the queue-size is related to the listener, 
not the source. If the listener sets up a small buffer, they can easily 
run out of it.
The source-timeout parameter is an important one for me, I'll raise 
that. Thanks!

Isn't there a parameter that controls the buffer size used in the 
server...? Or any other way to make this goal?
