Subject: performance under solaris

I recently changed over from qpopper 4.X to popa3d and using the 0.5.9 version.

While it installed just fine and works very well, there is a performance 
issued noted from qpopper TO popa3d.

It is a little hard to describe, but basically when we use qpopper and have 
a sizable mail spool file, it is 'popped' down very fast and continously 

However, with popa3d I see pauses (although not of any duration to speak of)
when grabbing this same exact mail spool file.  grab-pause-grab-pause and 
so on...

(I turned off my MTA to make sure this was not an issue)

I was therefore wondering if there are any suggestions with buffer 
adjustments (?) or similar within the params.h file to improve my performance.

I dont have a tremendouse amount of users, but someone noticed this and it 
certainly was reproducable.

Any thoughts?
