[rc5] Missing blocks?

I've seen something very similar. I initially downloaded 200 blocks, and
my log looked like this (as expected):

[10/23/97 02:35:12 GMT] Retrieved 200 block(s) from server
[10/23/97 02:35:12 GMT] Block: 64A6830B:90000000 ready for processing
[10/23/97 02:35:12 GMT] 199 Blocks remain in file C:\PROGRAM
FILES\RC5\buff-in.rc5
[10/23/97 02:35:12 GMT] 0 Blocks are in file C:\PROGRAM
FILES\RC5\buff-out.rc5
Child thread # 1 has been started.
[10/23/97 02:35:12 GMT] Block: 64A6830B:70000000 ready for processing
[10/23/97 02:35:12 GMT] 198 Blocks remain in file C:\PROGRAM
FILES\RC5\buff-in.rc5
[10/23/97 02:35:12 GMT] 0 Blocks are in file C:\PROGRAM
FILES\RC5\buff-out.rc5


Then after starting and stopping the client a number of times (the Win95
hidden version running on my laptop, which accounts for the starting and
stopping), I see the following in the log:

[10/24/97 06:46:30 GMT] Block: 64A68309:50000000 ready for processing
[10/24/97 06:46:30 GMT] 175 Blocks remain in file C:\PROGRAM
FILES\RC5\buff-in.rc5
[10/24/97 06:46:30 GMT] 18 Blocks are in file C:\PROGRAM
FILES\RC5\buff-out.rc5
Child thread # 1 has been started.
[10/24/97 06:46:31 GMT] Block: 64A68309:40000000 ready for processing
[10/24/97 06:46:31 GMT] 174 Blocks remain in file C:\PROGRAM
FILES\RC5\buff-in.rc5
[10/24/97 06:46:31 GMT] 18 Blocks are in file C:\PROGRAM
FILES\RC5\buff-out.rc5

If I add the number of blocks in my out buffer to those in my in buffer, I
get 193. So where are the other 7?
