By deafult Stream5 reassembles every 'n' segments, based on a flush point.

However, any session can be programatically changed/configured to
use the sliding window policy, which would reassemble with every
segment along a sliding window that is larger than the flush point.
Have a look at the stream api header file for details on the
set_reassembly() function.
