[RC5] Netware client glitch

I've noticed that the Netware client skips a block without processing 
it and leaves it in the buff-in file when you start up the client.  
Here's the log from where I started it up

RC5-64 Client v2.6401 started.  Using lunaslyd at pacbell.net as email 
address.

[11/15/97 16:44:35 GMT] Block: 64AAC063:20000000 ready for processing
[11/15/97 16:44:35 GMT] 199 Blocks remain in file buff-in.rc5
[11/15/97 16:44:35 GMT] 0 Blocks are in file buff-out.rc5
Child thread # 1 has been started.
[11/15/97 16:44:35 GMT] Block: 64AAC062:80000000 ready for processing
[11/15/97 16:44:35 GMT] 198 Blocks remain in file buff-in.rc5
[11/15/97 16:44:35 GMT] 0 Blocks are in file buff-out.rc5

[11/15/97 17:01:18 GMT] Completed block 64AAC063:20000000 (268435456 
keys)
                        00:16:42.00 - [267899.53 keys/sec]
[11/15/97 17:01:18 GMT] Block: 64AAC061:F0000000 ready for processing
[11/15/97 17:01:18 GMT] 197 Blocks remain in file buff-in.rc5
[11/15/97 17:01:18 GMT] 1 Blocks are in file buff-out.rc5
[11/15/97 17:01:18 GMT] Total: 1 blocks 00:16:42.00 - [267899.51 
keys/sec]

Notice it says it has 199 blocks in file buff-in and 0 in buff-out.  
Then it starts child thread # one and reports 198 blocks in buff-in 
and still 0 blocks in buff out.  I figured there were only 199 to 
begin with and the missing block  was currently being processed, but 
when I checked the buff-in file after running -runbuffers, there was 
one block left in buff-in.

Not a major thing, but an added anoyance on a client that should be 
self sufficient.

BTW, I'm running IntraNetWare 4.11 with IPX only on a Cyrix 686, with 
the client that came out 11/09.  This is the ini file
