[PROXYPER] Is 30x a lemon?

I agree with this, which is why I am running my 2 proxys at 280 still, and
my 100 clients are locked down on version level until this utter mess of
coding is corrected. You want my blocks, ya better get writing code that
works. I don't want to spend half my life troubleshooting a set and forget
piece of code.

while I was upset a but about problems with detaching (and I changed
start up scripts), and while I still can't run logcompressor (neither
gzip nor rm), I wouldn't consider these problem too big.

I don't know if locking was neccessary (and the explanation sounded
lame - does that mean that once you're locking personal proxies, you
can cut out dupe-checking code from the master?) but I can certainly
live with that (added -unlock and -repair to startup scripts).

What I still do not understand is that a part of the buffers is never
flushed to the disc. Is that really neccessary? It did cost me
already a few hundred block - and it will keep costing me more blocks
in the future. I am not going to back up the proxy computer with UPS
and stuff.

I would really appreciate if someone would, really carefully,
explain me why I have to sacrifice a part of my keyrate - what big
gain for the comunity I am serving. Until I see that explanation, I
consider 30x a lemon and myself a lab rat. (But I'll keep using it
since I don't want to care about "client v.xxxx needs proxy at least
