Andrew, either you are able to explain it, or it should be regarded bug
imo! That is not the only issue with rebol handling packets, I e.g.
found difference between using open/direct/no-wait and
open/direct/no-wait/binary ... simply talking to our device, if I don't
use /binary refinement, exactly the same loop is quit and rebol refuses
to wait .... I even watched packets and from the device pov everything
was just exactly the same in our case ....
