Hi Carlton,

If you really, really want this to be unlimited, you have to chain large buffers together; or alternatively, you could refill the single large buffer from a temporary file in a transparent manner.  There were several subtle bugs
in the buffer handling (which are now fixed), so if you attempt this you should do alot of testing, especially exactly filling the buffer, or filling it plus one character, etc.
