[lots of helpful stuff about rtmpdump going nuts]

I posted a patch on the rtmpdump mailing list, and was asked if I'd
tried a different (not-committed) patch, attached below.

I'm not convinced this will really help, but does someone with even
faster fibre than me care to give it a try? (some judicious
installation of real ethernet cable got mine running reliably at
55Mbps, but I still can't reproduce the problem people were reporting

if someone doesn't like compiling stuff but is willing to test please
let me know what platform you're using and I will do a test build.
