[RC5] Keylength problems in 383 client

In the new 383 versions of the rc5des clients the DOS and win32_CLI are 
reporting
incorrect keylengths.  Here's a little sample from my win32_CLI log:

[01/15/98 13:02:37 GMT] DES 2^30 Block: 0000F604:00000000 ready to process
[01/15/98 13:02:37 GMT] 437 Blocks remain in file 
c:\rc5\buffers\buff-in.des
[01/15/98 13:02:37 GMT] 1 Blocks are in file c:\rc5\buffers\buff-out.des
[01/15/98 13:02:38 GMT] Tot: 0 RC5 blocks 00:21:40.19 - [0.00 keys/sec]
                        Tot: 1 DES blocks 00:21:40.19 - [743069.64 
keys/sec]

[01/15/98 13:12:37 GMT] Completed block 0000F604:80000000 (-2147483648 
keys)
                        00:10:02.20 - [1003846.97 keys/sec]

I am wondering why it reports the size of a 2^31 block (basically) when I 
am
using 2^30 blocks.
On my DOS box I am using 2^28 blocks but it reports the completed block 
size as a
2^29 block.

Any help is appreciated.

Josh
