There is a 64K report size limit per user report. If the next entry 
would exceed that limit then the report to date is sent immediately and 
the next entry starts a new report. So it is possible to get reports 
outside the scheduled report time.

However, there looks to be an issue with there not being enough room to 
allow for headers and the lead in message, which results in truncating 
the last couple of lines of the report.

This doesn't work (yet). The -f option and B/W list support behaviour 
has been left undecided since I'm unsure what semantics I want to apply.

If a report gets too large, its sent outside of the planned schedule.
