This section has been reworked such that send may limit its queue  
size, and if exceeded that will cause the queue to be discarded, the  
connection to be closed, and a GlobalException with code DENIED_ERR  
to be raised.

Thank you for your comments, please let us know shortly if this does  
not address your comments,
