Using lumberjack to connect two logstash instances hangs after 4999 events are transmitted

Description

Original discussion in newsgroup

Logstash transmits only windows_size - 1 events from a lumberjack output to a lumberjack input. After that it hangs waiting for an ack message.

lumberjack/client.rb:103

This appears to be fixed in the latest code in https://github.com/elasticsearch/logstash-forwarder, but that code is not present in 1.2.2's flatjar.

I was able to patch the flatjar by modifying the lumberjack client.rb file within the jar:

lumberjack/client.rb
