[rc5] Sharing buffer/ini files via NFS

I'm sharing both buffer and ini files over NFS so that I can just
do one buffer file.  (I'm also using the unix personal proxy).

Clients are Solaris v2.

Here is what confuses me:

1) I have no idea which machine is getting the buffer errors.
2) Why do the block numbers vary so much?

If I run -update, that appears to work fine.

Here is the .ini file:

[parameters]
id=jot at bofh.com
threshold=100
count=0
hours=0
timeslice=65536
niceness=0
logname=/users/node127/jot/rc5/rc5.log
;firemode=1
firemode=5
keyproxy=node127
keyport=2057
uuehttpmode=0

Ideas?
