	Thanks, this makes my pproxy work well except a couple of

	1. all the reported client IP becomes .
	2. my settings of (minkeysready/maxkeysread/minkeysdone) =
	   600:1000:5.  In this balance, sometimes (when the ppbuffin
	   blocks exceeds 1000?) done DES blocks becomes over 100
	   and pproxy still charges done keys in ppbuffout.
	   After removing ppbuffin.des (!! check it later...) and
	   restart pproxy, the 100 done blocks are flushed.
	   what's the suggested balance?
	   (the default 50:100:50 is too small to fetch blocks for
	   offline PCs through floppy whose setting is 500:500 or so.
	   online PC clients are set to 10:10).

	Also somebody (not me) says that cascaded pproxy rewrites
	email as rc5 at distributed.net when some kind of error occurs
	(something like ``invalid os'' or so...?).

	btw, is the old pproxy feature of rewriting email not available
	now?  that was a very useful for me.
