The 383 build of the Linux-MT client does correctly report its build
information and the binary's name.  The tar file for build 383 unpacks
the client in a subdirectory named "rc5des" whereas the older builds
did not, if I recall correctly.  If you untar this in your actual client
directory, then the untar won't complete since it can't create this 

I'm guessing you're not actually running the 383 binary yet -- possibly
because it unpacked from the tar file in an unexpected location (if at 

Here's what the Linux 2.7002.383 client reports:

$ ./rc5des -update

for usage

I don't think the fault is in the binary, but somewhere at your end.
I've been running this build 383 binary for a little over a day now,
so its doubtful that you somehow downloaded a different one than mine:

rc5        326 99.9  0.4   876   312   6 R  Jan 19 2905:46 ./rc5des
