You are welcome. *smile*

One of the greatest advantages of open-src s/w is that you can look at the code while scratching
your head in the corner - this way you gain better understanding of the system and we, the
project, will hopefully gain another valuable contributor... hint, hint. ;-)

Good luck.

with security + append) you would still see this behaviour because you are hitting 'user limits'
where the CS will not allow a single user to take more than the queue 'configured' capacity
(12 slots here). You will need more than one user in the 'orange' queue  to go over the queue's
capacity. This is to prevent a single user from hogging the system's resources.
