I'm saying that the behavior of the sendfile library is buggy. But it  
could be due to something underlying..

Either threadWaitWrite is buggy and should be fixed. Or  
threadWaitWrite is doing the right thing, and sendfile needs to be  
modified some how to account for the behavior. But I don't know which  
is the case or how to implement a solution to either option.
