Thanks for the bug report and reproduction steps.
I can reproduce this problem, and there's definitely a timing sensitive bug
here (which a larger paste seems to trigger). There is also perhaps something
not quite right about the way select() is behaving here, as it seems to be
returning 0 before the timeout expires, which I need to investigate further.
I've uploaded a snapshot at  with a fix and a workaround. Perhaps you could
try that and see if it improves things for you?
