Cool. I'll check that out. I've done a big shuffle around of the block
driver code to fix a few problems, and I'm still getting hangs, but I
think dbgview from sysinternals is dropping kernel messages so I think
I'm missing out on where the action is, as the logs I am getting don't
tell me that there is anything out of whack. Of course there could be a
simple off-by-one error or something somewhere.

Yes. I'm thinking of hosting my own in the short term if I can't find
another simple solution.
