Not really a kluge, loop on read 'till you get it all is kind of standard
for BSDish machines.  I went through this 10 years ago when I was working
on a multi-flavor network-parallel processing package.  I was going to
mention something up-thread but then I came to this post and figured the
problem was solved.
