Your client and proxy are functioning properly. Your proxy picked up the
signals from the main proxies indicating the end of DESII-1. It then passes
this on to clients in the form of very small signal blocks. After the client
gets some of these, it will work on RC5 instead. These signal blocks are the
"garbage" you observed. Fear not, all is well!
