Sample is (very!) useful, please also provide the command line
that allows you to reproduce the issue together with the
complete, uncut console output.

If the issue is reproducible without using network (ie with an
output file), please use files instead of a network as this will
make reproduce the issue infinitely simpler,

And please simplify the command line as much as possible
(but with setting a small quantizer).
