[rc5] v2 clients not reporting saved work?

regardless of what the log says, I saw it report a saved block after I had stopped it earlier today.

This is getting more weird.  After waiting for a bit, it basically did
this (summary of what my log says, the majority is in my previous

- working on some block
- interrupt, save work
- resume client, worked on previously saved block.
- go get 5 more blocks, without saying that the result on the last one
  is reported.  It says "retrieved 5 blocks".
- after 4 blocks are done, it says "sent 5 blocks", and fetch another
  5 blocks.

I haven't waited long enough (another 2 hours) to see what it does with
these 5 new blocks.

When it says "retrieved 5 blocks" the first time, does it take into account
of the block already done, and so only retrieved 4 blocks?  This is getting
confusing, because what the log says doesn't seem to be consistent with
what actually happened.

Again, it happened on both the Linux and Win 32 clients.
