Yes, it really does have those breaks.  Here, check out this grep:

grep "Blocks remain" rc5.log
[08/27/97 18:39:00 GMT] 21 Blocks remain in file buff-in.rc5
[08/27/97 18:48:18 GMT] 54 Blocks remain in file buff-in.rc5
[08/27/97 18:48:16 GMT] 20 Blocks remain in file buff-in.rc5
[08/27/97 18:56:18 GMT] 53 Blocks remain in file buff-in.rc5
[08/27/97 18:23:20 GMT] 0 Blocks remain in file buff-in.rc5
[08/27/97 19:00:05 GMT] 52 Blocks remain in file buff-in.rc5
[08/27/97 19:04:45 GMT] 19 Blocks remain in file buff-in.rc5
[08/27/97 18:55:41 GMT] 0 Blocks remain in file buff-in.rc5
[08/27/97 19:06:12 GMT] 51 Blocks remain in file buff-in.rc5
[08/27/97 18:59:44 GMT] 18 Blocks remain in file buff-in.rc5
[08/27/97 19:05:57 GMT] 17 Blocks remain in file buff-in.rc5

This is just a sample.

It could be "rogue" machine, but I've looked at can't find it, and
as you noted, it doesn't print the machine name trying.  I suppose
I could "snoop" for it, but this machine does a LOT of traffic.

It's not permissions, it's a subdir of my homedir.

It probably is some "rogue" I started out there, especially since
it's ignoring my proxy and going to distributed, but I'll be damned
if I can find it.
