Should have read ahead - this is probably the problem I was recalling
in my last reply.  There was some reason I tended to keep my variable
block sizes that my scripts were picking <= 32K or so.

If that's it, then I doubt it's the "bit length overflow" issue since
I was running into this back with a modified 2.4.3.
