You misspelled "slowly" above. But that brings to a question that
arose after my 386DX40/8MB finished its first 2^30 DES block in 18.5 

The odd thing is: This machine did 20kkeys/sec on RC5 and now does
32kkeys/sec on DES for an increase of about 50%. On the same time my
486DX40/16MB went from about 40kkeys (RC5) to 86kkeys (DES).

It's the same client (rc5des388-linux-nomt.tgz), the 386 runs with nice=2
on a "dedicated" machine with most unneaded processes killed (as before).

Any idea why the client is so slow on the 386 ?
