[RC5] Build 398 Recall / Bug Acknowledgement

The build 398 client contains a bug that results in the buff-out.rc5 count being reported as 0 at all times.  Besides being 
cosmetic, this bug also prevents from the client from ever flushing any blocks.  Luckily, completed blocks ARE being put into 
the out buffer.  Other clients (which do read the buffer count correctly) ARE able to flush these blocks.  So, in the meantime, 
until a fixed version is out, do not be alarmed that blocks are not showing up in your stats.  If you wish to flush these blocks 
now, please downgrade to an older client.  The build 398 build clients will be pulled from the ftp site shortly and replaced with 
their older counterparts.

Thank you,
