      Description

      Pipe write operations across a network are limited to 65,535 bytes per write. For more information regarding pipes, see the Remarks section.

      Source: WriteFileEx function

      I managed to run into exactly that limit today. Patch follows.

      Symptom is that

      • the writing end acts as if it had written all the bytes (in fact, it did)
      • but the remainder of ~ 65535 bytes is just lost somewhere and never reaches the reading end

      Consequently, the process at the reading end of the pipe gets stuck while waiting for the remaining bytes.
