That's what I figured., hadn't looked at the code. I guess it's a  
reasonable figure, I've only run onto a longer break once, but I  
suppose bumping it to 4800 couldn't hurt. Configurable would be nice  
but probably cause more problems.

Is the reasoning for having any sort of maximum to prevent the  
commercial skip function from running amok? That would make sense,  

Thanks for the answer.
