I modified my AJB, buffering didn't work correctly. I talked with
Linus, Gerald Clark gave me a patch with some dynamic calculation in.
I tried around and the current code is what's left so that it is
working. (Yes, that's how real programmers work. ;-) )

I didn't understand what the code exactly does or why it works and
haven't time and desire to find it out. Feel free to improve the code.

Bye, Uwe.
