It might be worth trying Charles Coffing's patch to the iostream
handling. I'm planing on applying it when I get a chance.

Going beyond 100% is normal behaviour, but obviously it should terminate
eventually, after doing a number of iterations.

Posting the xfrd log (after applying the patch) would be interesting.
