[REBOL] [FIXED?] read-io & write-io or Wait or is TCL better?

Oke i inserted the "clear buffer" in the while loop, so now after every write-io
the buffer is cleared. Guess wot??? It works.. :-)
Amazingly strange because the FTP traffic came over without errors, also did telnet,
but with the clear buffer the ssh now works fine too.
(this proofs again that SSH does a good job on packet checks too ;-)
Strange though..I would have had expected the read-io to keep track of a
start-pointer when appending to the buffer, because it tracks the Length of the
data it reads (so end-pointer is checked, but not the start pointer).. Mmmmm is
that logical or not when doing lowlevel io?
The trick worked!
Thank you all for the participation ;-)
When the code is finished ill port and post it for global use...
-> As I said to Petr, READ-IO does *NOT* overwrite your buffer. If
-> you have data in it, it will append to it. So you either have to
-> skip the initial data when writing (but then you could end up
-> filling your buffer!) or clear it each time. (Notice that CLEAR is
-> O(1) so this does not add any performance problems.)
