hi again Tim,

there is a limit of 20000 bytes that can be transferred up to the
gui ``at once''.  If exceeded, the gui chokes.  During closing of
a window, the sequence is:

1. send ".x%x.c delete all\n" to the gui (%x takes the glist's

2. do some clean-up

3. send "destroy .x%x\n" to the gui

If there is some bulk data sent up in the intermediate stage (2),
possibly through a tot, then there will be a possibility of
loosing the command "destroy" -- particularly so, when using
threaded transfer, which tends to glue data into larger `bursts'.

No proof, however, that this is actually the case...  If it is,
then, perhaps, spreading tot's activity more evenly in time will
help?  Or, somehow filtering the data stream?
