[RC5] Mac Client Speeds

     Dumb question: are the block sizes the same in the experiments?  I 
     recall RC5 blocks *were* 2^28 bit, but they seem to default to 2^30 
     on the dual core clients.  (This is, of course, configurable.)

Oh boy - here we go...
     
Now that DES is over, I went back to plugging away at RC5 and I recalled 
that I still had several blocks in buffins from the old RC5 client, so I 
went and ran my old client (v2.002) to polish off those blocks and it 
seemed to be faster (roughly 10% faster) than the dual client (392)
that I was running for DES. (I also like the pretty charts it draws.)
     
Is this speed difference an illusion? Has anyone else noticed this? 
Cause even if the difference is close I like the pretty charts (and the 
fact that I don't need to stop to change settings). Can anyone forsee 
any problems with using the old client?
