Hard code the CPU selection. A prior version always selected the wrong 
CPU on my PPro. Hardcoding the right one in -config was good for 50k 

PPro166/512k overclocked to 200 (ran it for 30 mintues at 233 before I 
chickened out, rock solid the past 23 days at 200):

[01/14/98 18:06:32 local] Tot: 0 RC5 blocks 20:26:35.47 - [0.00 keys/sec]
                        Tot: 31 DES blocks 20:26:35.47 - [855473.75

The human mind ordinarily operates at only ten percent of its
capacity -- the rest is overhead for the operating system.
