[RC5] Processor Fairy?

My keyrate has just made a very improbable jump.  From around 95kks to
over 200kks last night, then cycling between the two rates.  I am only
running a P75, so the former rate seems more accurate.  The only
difference that I perceive should have had a negative impact.  I left a
DH-Grep-PM running a full text search over about 4GB of data.  It ran
for nine hours or until around 1:00am.  I come in this morning
expecting to see my keyrate thoroughly tanked, but instead it has
doubled.  It looks like it is working just fine, just fast, then slow,
then fast!


Any ideas?  

Am I sending invalid blocks?

Did the Magical Mystery Processor Fairy upgrade me in the middle of the
night?
