[aprssig] delayed packets.

And, alas, another one: my YAAC program on any O/S when given a near-planetary-sized feed. The Java garbage collector can occasionally freeze the program for long intervals (10's of seconds) when cleaning up an extremely large memory heap (over 1 Gb).

But then, I never intended YAAC to be used for planetary-sized feeds (though I do test it there periodically to ensure some short-term performance flaw hasn't slipped in during development). Most people don't have high-enough-resolution screens to see local stations for the entire planet. ;-)

I'll give you two:

*) Windows boxes that are about ready to croak due to excessive memory or CPU being used.  They can slow down to a crawl sometimes and delay processing of packets as they're heading from TNC -> Inet.

*) Xastir way back when:  Reading in a log file used to send the packets out the igate port(s) as well.  Fixed in code at least a couple of years ago.
