No, no, no! You have message size and iounit confused. You only
learn the iounit when you open a file, not when you initiate a
connection, and it *must* be less than the message size. libixp,
by default, makes it 24 bytes smaller, because that fits read
and write headers. It can also be zero, in which case, you have
to make up your own. Nevertheless, the count in a read request
*must* be less than the message size minus the size of the other
