[rc5] -runbuffers weirdness

I am running rc5-64 on several computers without direct net access, so I'm
using the -runbuffers option to process a full buffer.  When the client
empties a buffer, it leaves behind 1 or 2 keyblocks in the incoming buffer. 
When I start another rc564 to finish off the buff-in file, it just sits
there churning forever (well, at least till I stop it.).

There's a log output from the client.  Note the "592.73% complete."  This
entry is from a client that spent about 2.5-3 hours churning on these
"phantom" blocks.

This is with the Linux x86 client.
