Take the mt-linux rc56401 client, configure it for a few blocks (more than
2), and download those blocks.  Run the client on the buff-in file with the
-runbuffers option and wait for the client to halt itself due to an emtpy
buff-in file.

It will leave a key or two in the buff-in file. 

Attempt the restart the client with -runbuffers to finish off the buff-in
file.   The first key it starts working on will be a "stuck" key, or at
least that's been my experience so far.
