Isn't that kind of how buffers are *supposed* to work? At least, in any
programming language I've ever worked in (which, granted, has only been 3
others) or classes I've taken, buffers were written to, filled, dumped,
emptied, and the process repeated. Otherwise, it continues to grow until
something stops it (such as an overflow).
