A few months ago the keyserver was not big enough to hold all blocks. 
Instead it could only contain 4 subspaces.

This resulted in blocks being recycled after ONE MONTH: subspace no. 5 
could only be started when subspace no. 1 was completely terminated.

At that time everybody was advised to throw inbuffers away after one month 
and to get fresh ones.

I have no idea if the master keyserver has been expanded since then. 

This is only something I remember from this mailing list, a small 
confirmation from the d.net folks would be appreciated.
