I'm affraid I'm out of my league on the nonblocking issue.  I see
references to pcap_getnonblock and pcap_setnonblock in the pcap.h file
provided with the Napatech Software Suite.  Beyond that, at the moment I'm
not sure how to investigate further.  I may use pf_ring as an immediate
solution, and communicate with the Npulse team in the longer term, unless
of course someone saves the day with stories of success.

Thanks for your feedback!
