Hi !

There seems to be a bug in the MacOS Version of the rc5 client:

   Rank           Host          Blocks Time Working  Last Seen Avg Kkeys/sec

 4962   saturn.franken.de        277     17.5 hrs     1.1 hrs     1219.788
                                                         ago

the Kkeys/sec (of a PPC601/66) is much too high.
when you specify the options -w 0 and -s at the same time, the client
reports an error but also sends the result for an uncalculated key tho the
key server.
