I've noticed the LIFO irritation.  I have my desktop machine set for 40:3,
which will allow me to run offline for awhile, but tends to get some blocks
back every hour or so.  I made a point of flushing my buffer last night.

But, "lost" blocks at the bottom of the buffer are not statistically
significant.  Bovine claims that lost blocks will be tested when the
keyspace end is reached.  While the attack in preceding in order, it does
not matter statistically which ordering method if any is used.  Random
blocks will work just as well, but suffer from a potential duplication
problem.  No point in wasting processor time with duplicates on purpose.
