It's unanticipated behaviour I guess...it also happens if you send the 
values as separate messages with a single bang. If you put a chain of 
massages separated by [delay]s you can find the shortest delay that 
sends them all separately.
I find that I need a delay of at least 8ms between messages for them to 
be transmitted separately. It's up to the implementation of TCP in the 
machine to decide when to send a packet. Probably UDP would send them 
all individually.
