I found that my Performa 475 running the v2 client on a dial-up link wasn't
reporting its blocks back.  I've emailled this list and the Mac developer
about the problem, but I've not had a response on what the problem is or
how to fix it.

I've stopped running the client - clearly, there's no point until this
problem is fixed.
