Move the old buff-in.rc5 to buff-in2.rc5
This is so it will stay on top of the new one..

more the new buff-in to buff-in.rc5

run "rc5des -ckpoint buff-in2.rc5"

Ctrl-C it right after it says: 120 blocks read in.

It may be possible to do this with a exitrc5.now, but it might also get
the real client.
