     You're uploading using the Win95 client.  Are the other clients Win95 
     clients?  I ask because the upper limit on buffered blocks might be 
     different for the different clients...

Soem of you have mentioned an error that looks like this ->> The proxy

Gotta' tell you guys but I think it's a BUG in the client! I buffer many 
keys to two machines here and every couple of days I put the completed keys 
through my PerProxy to the main servers via a command line 2.004 client 
(WIN95). Sure enough I get this same error - every single time after the 
exact same number of keys. (I've never counted how many keys so if someone 
"needs to know) drop me a line direct and I'll count the twiddles for ya')
     
At first I thought it was my imagination but after getting so many keys 
that I had to redo the -update three times in a row I could see on the 
screen that it was happening in the same spot each time. Since my PerProxy 
runs on the same machine there's no network activity that could be causing 
this. (shrug) Personally on a scale of one to ten with ten being a big 
disaster I'd rate this problem pretty low - say a two. In my scenario it 
means I have to update a few times in a row, no biggie. For those of you 
who don't see it as often as I have relax, my stats still update fine and 
nothing is wrong with your machine. This didn't start showing up until 
after the buffers were expanded so perhaps something somewhere is just 
overflowing - still cracks just fine! (grin)
