[Winpcap-users] Delay receiving packets - wrong functionality ofpcap_setmintocopy()

I started with WinSock, but it is not capable of getting 6 GB/s data
transfer speeds, or at least I could not make it getting that amount of
data per second. Winpcap does it for me. However, sometimes I need only
one set of 64 packets received in one go (that is one image of my
detector sent to PC) and I get stalled in the middle of the transfer
until timeout occurs.
