OK, it seems I can't expect anyone to jump up and come up with a magical fix
here, so what about a temporary hotfix? The UDP module already increases the
receive buffers to 512 kB, so maybe we can do the same thing for the TCP
module? That would at least hide the problem most of the time, as long as the
user doesn't try to pause the stream.
