Thanks Daniel. I can confirm your fix solves the problem.

I still have one failing test that excercises 'large' writes. It
tries to write 1,000,000 bytes to the target but only manages to write
something between 30,000 and 100,000 bytes. If I step through it
using the debugger it works fine so it's probably related to network
timing. I believe the problem affects reading too.

I'll try to put together a self-contained test-case that reproduces the problem.


P.S. Testing done on Windows 7 x64
