Not entirely true, I admit a bunch of code is new, but with the goal
to implement some new features. The simple problem is, if I allocate a
size to a socket, they should simply respect it. But due to all the
different tray implementations, they all behave different.
I will take a look at the issue, there is also a bug about this, but I
already know it works fine here, because I've tested the code a
zillion times...
