[RC5-PROXYPER] Solaris pproxy (275) STILL can't seem to reliably upload blocks

Hello,

I've switched to version 275 of the DES-proxy (Solaris-version), and
initially it seemed to work. I managed to post several thousands of blocks,
but then it stopped again. After a while I noticed that I was able to post
blocks when I was downloading new blocks (both RC5 and DES) at the same
time. It seems that you have to trade in an old for a new block :p The
problem was that my output-buffer is much larger, so I have currently over
5000 blocks who can't seem to make it to the keyserver. Unless my proxy
just happens to download new ones at the same time. And in the mean time,
my proxy tries to open a connection to the keyserver (euro.v27.d.n every 60
seconds ... but fails. I guess this must create a nice load on the
Solnet-servers :-)

I guess it's just a conspiracy to prevent me from finding the key *again*
<grin>

This is part of a mail from somebody on rc5 at llamas.net, who described the
same problem, but with version 274 and 274b (in his case, the
Linux-version). I just copied it, because my logs are similar, and I was
just to lazy to extract these pieces myself ...
