Once again: All these problems are fixed now. Basically it was a sort
of endianess problem in certain bitmask that caused big-endian
machines read the bits the other way around than little-endian
machines. (no, your blocks are safe, it was a little error in the
part where the client receives info if the contests are not closed,
the client accidentely got the info that all contests were closed.

Expect new clients and proxies soon.
