Thanks. It seems that 648k was the largest size ever used for a buffer,
which is less than 1/3 of the full size (2M for Result,Transfer and TS).
The Recorder buffer was typically at 5% of its max size, ie 300k instead
of 5M. No overflows w/ v3 of the patch (two with the previous version,
which was starting out with just 128k).

I get a lot worse results here (buffers grow to a few M), but that's
probably because the vdr box is not a dedicated one, but also handles
quite a few other services; IO stalls are not uncommon and several
simultaneous recordings are sometimes done while streaming via streamdev
to another vdr. Still, no overflows.
