I think the problem only occurs when there are both RC5 and DES blocks
waiting to be sent to the server.  I couldn't get it to send the blocks and
unzipped copy of the OS/2 274b personal proxy into the directory. 

The OS/2 client package doesn't have an ini file included so it used the
rc5proxy.ini from the 261 build.  I started the client and it acted like it
didn't know anything about DES and sent all the rc5 blocks.  Then I used the
271 proxy which was also in that directory with it's full ini and it shipped
out the DES blocks.

Right now the proxy has:

[01/15/98 17:08:26 GMT] rc564 r=1754/2000, d=234/1, des r=1883/2000, d=12/1

and can't send blocks again.
