I believe it was mentioned previously on here that the keyblocks will be
handed out in a more or less sequential order, and that, if the winning
key has not been found by the time all keyblocks have been handed out, the
servers will go back and redistributed the keyblocks that it never heard
back from--which would include that keyblocks that were lost due to system
crashes.
