No. I also think reallocating is a bad idea. The buffer is "large" because
of packet loss in high bandwidth cases. Reducing it is not an option and
adding more overhead (reallocating) is also not.

I think the real problem is that stream buffering is not working the way
it should. Similar issues have also plagued UDP and HTTP at least.
