Cool! Thanks for the quick fix. I wanted to point out that even 
READ-SEQUENCE had similar problems, but that too seems to have been 
fixed i.e. READ-SEQUENCE now correctly waits till the required amount of 
data has been sent by the client.

On that note, does iolib provide any function to read a chunk of data 
without blocking i.e. something like READ-CHAR-NO-HANG for sequences? 
(or, something akin to what read(2) provides when O_NONBLOCK is set).
