Hi Patrick,

I actually don't know what the limit is for the number of shares or if
there is any such limit.

That's good to know. Although it could be that a share was added or a
comment on one was changed and it caused something about the data to
change. We'll see. Of it could be that the fragmented response is not
the problem at all and it's something else entirely. I haven't looked
at it closely enough.
