 chktime=10  (this is a tradeoff, if the machine is on a UPS you likely
can kick it up more, but has only a SMALL effect on keyrate)

 noexitfilecheck=1 help a little (helps more on floppy-based non-95
 The BIG difference is to *NOT* set nice=0 - that WILL cause the client
to gradually lose CPU priority and slow WAY down. nice=2 works, and
doesn't noticeably slow the machine down for other usage.
