_Every_ single PC we installed 458 or 458b (for NT) on immediately 
stopped flushing completed blocks to the pproxy when the flush 
threshold was exceeded. So we backed them out to 455 until a working 
client arrives.

On the one PC (dual PII 300) I tried OGR on this morning, it took 
over an hour to reach 4% of one block. To get any useful info from 
our pproxy logs, we need blocks returned much much sooner than that.
