Well observed!

My assumption (there we go again) was that Joe must have read the  
documentation in order to have discover the existence of {packet, N},  
but found it lacking. Reading the page more carefully now it is clear  
that it does specify the behaviour.

Where you perchance peeking under the hood to discover this option  
Joe ? :-)
