FYI, I can tell you that we have seen the same with CSR hardware, 
so I do not think the hardware is at fault here. It is either the
OpenBT stack itself, the USB Bluetooth driver, the USB core or 
the USB driver (uhci or whatever). We use our own USB driver for
the ETRAX hardware, so I do not think it is that part of the
code since the result is the same with a standard PC.

The limit seems to be ~128 bytes. One thing I have noticed though
is that it seems that larger packets get through, but are never
responded to (at least the receive counter in Windows increase
when I send larger packets, but the send counter does not). Has
anyone tested this with something else than a Windows client?
