I have been seeing this for the past 2-3 days. For instance, the stats
update of 03 Apr 00:00 GMT reports that I completed 515 blocks,
however my proxy logs have 969 unique blocks. A similar situation
exists for the previous 2 days.

One clue that I may have is that on the 31st I increased my proxy
buffer size and it fetched several thousand blocks. When I grepped for
'random' in the console log for that day I found this: 

[03/31/98 04:53:16 GMT] Using new randomprefix 0x69, replacing 0x67

[03/31/98 20:44:21 GMT] Using new randomprefix 0x69, replacing 0x6a

These are the only occurances of 'randomprefix' in all of my console
logs for March, and this corresponds roughly to the beginning of my
'missing blocks'.
