[rc5] Buffers on shared disks

I'm running the clients on a few machines (all unix) that share home
directories. When one client updates the buffer do both clients start
processing the same blocks from the buff-in.rc5 file ? If so isn't
this a waste of effort ;-) and could this be fixed by calling the
buffer file buff-in.$HOSTNAME.rc5 instead? Putting something in the
.ini file won't help as the .ini file is also shared.
