OK understand, I only tried it out because my son was complaining that
the buffering takes too long (not a criticism from me you understand).
Now I understand why, I shall have to educate him in being patience.
Is there any chance you could update the configuration page on your
website to warn others not to do this?
If you want I can always write a patch file for the HTML of the
configuration page and send it to you (assuming that you've construct
the website pages using a tesxt editor)
