Currently, the rc5help at distributed.net is split between myself and another person.  I just searched all through my rc5help 
inbox and historical messages, and was not able to find your message.  Either both messages didn't get sent to me, or 
never arrived at distributed.net.  Either way, there is no answer.  There is no way to fix corrupted buffers files.  Just delete 
it and go on.  As to how the buffer got corrupted?  That's for you to answer.  I've been running the client in its various 
incarnations for almost a year now, never having a single corrupted buffer; it seems that corrupted buffers are usually 
caused by faulty file sharing systems or system crashes.
