As the FAQ makes clear, those partially-completed blocks just get buried
inside the 'to-do' file, the buff-in.rc5.  They do get completed eventually,
unless something untoward happens to that file.  The client is smart enough
to know to resume at the proper point whenever it happens upon the partial
blocks again.
