I suspect that this is also dependant on whether you are running on a
linux box or under MS-Windows. 

clx boxes tend to use a 'tranche size' of 100 for messages and that
works fine with linux boxes (or at least it used to). 

It seems to be possible to overflow AGW Engine buffers (although there
is a newer version out since you had that problem Charlie; that may be
worth a look) and you may need to get your AK1A link partner to
experiment with the no of lines per 'tranche' (BTW what is the packet
cluster command for that Charlie?).

I think Bob is running Linux and AFAIK that can handle any number of
incoming lines per 'tranche'.
