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).
