Hi.

I'm running a K6-200 and it seems the new OS/2 client (17/11) 
acts strangely. Here are the results I got from the benchmarks
I made with different optimization options:

      Core                Old client    New client
                           (23/10)       (17/11)

-1 (Autodetect)     -->  303 kk/s (*)    309 kk/s (*)
 0 (iP, iPMMX, M2)  -->  303             309
 1 (i386, i486)     -->  309             312
 2 (iPpro, iP II)   -->  292             299
 3 (Amd 486, Cyrix) -->  290             298
 4 (Amd K5)         -->  285             280
 5 (Amd K6)         -->  312             278 (**)

(*) it choses the '0' mode, although I have a K6 and although this
    mode isn't the fastest ..

(**) And here, I've got a 10% drop compared to the old client,
     and this core leeds to the slowest speed ..

So, what's the matter, should I use the 386/486 core (which has the
same results as the former k6 core) ? Or is there a reason so that
I shouldn't use it ?

Thanks for any hints.
