2.7111 win32 clients seem to be creating exitrc5.now on their own
somehow.  We're unsure how/why it's happening and are trying to track
the bug right now.  If you see such a file mysteriously appear in the
future, save a copy of it, then see if you can find any correlation
between its creation and something logged in the log file.  If you find
such info, send it to cyp at distributed.net and silby at distributed.net, as
it will help us track the problem.
