I compiled the source under OS/2 and, without optimization and with debugging 
switch, I get:

[E:\download\extract]client-6x86-2.exe -m
RC5-56 client modified from the genx sources by
Rémi Guyomarch <rguyom at mail.dotcom.fr> - 97/07/10
rc5-56-client (rg) : Testing crypt routines
rc5-56-client (rg) : Crypt routine isn't working !
rc5-56-client (rg) : (detecting a good key)
rc5-56-client (rg) : key = 0x1411B3 0x5A9A98DA

If I compile without debugging and with optimization, I get a core dump.
