The client rarely generates substantial data.  The case I am considering
is when the server dumps a substantial amount of data, followed by any
length printf from the client.  The dump of data from the server could
conceivably fill the stdio buffer without triggering a flush.  Any
printf following that would lose data if the attempted flush returned
