That worries me because my logs show that I have have received 312
segment 65 blocks from two key proxies (alde.com and davehard adsl). Assumng
that everybody else has also been given segment 65 blocks from the key
proxies, this means checking random blocks is effectively a waste of time.

D.net tracks all the blocks that are returned to them.
