I believe that you can manage the buffer separately from the thread that is
crunching the keys.  Just before you leave in the morning, open a second window
and run "rc5v2 -flush" and "rc5v2 -fetch" to flush out the completed blocks and
fetch new ones.  You shouldn't have to wait until the entire set of blocks is
completed to do this.
