well, the proper solution is not simple at all, but there is a very
quick and dirty solution. Increasing this magic number of 16 to 64 (32
is still a critical number if you are dealing with files of average
60kb, as you said on irc) would solve the problem for you and would
prevent you from wasting money on another device ;-)

For that, you'd need to get a personal build, best build by yourself.
If you totally dare to do so, you can certainly find somebody else
that is willing to compile such a build for you from times to times.
