[rc5] Missing blocks?

Ok, despite my earlier post, I've decided to go ahead with RC5-64.  What can
I say, I hate to see idle time go to waste and I'm hooked. :)

I seem to be having a problem with the hidden Win95 client, see the log
below:
RC5-64 Client v2.6401 started.  Using nataylor at nmt.edu as email address.

As I understand the initial "eating" of one block is actually prepping it to
get processed.  What I don't understand is that after I started the client,
ended up rebooting my machine, and restarting the client is where blocks 17
and 16 went.  They never got processed or sent to the server.  They just
kind of disappeared and the client started to work on blocks 15 and 14.  Any
ideas on why this is the case, or am I just misreading things?
