Unix x86 clients have a bug causing a core dump on 486DX when they try
to detect processor model and brand. It shows under Linux but perhaps
also under bsdi and/or freebsd. We're working on it.
If you're hit by this bug, you can still force the client to use a
particular processor-optimized code with "./rc5des -config" or "./rc5des
-c <n>".
