[RC5] So long RC5, hello SETI

Both d.net clients (Windows and UNIX) have an impact in performance. I
tested it on a Dual PII 333 MHz, with 384 MB of RAM. This machine is a Game
Server (I work for an ISP). When the d.net client is active, the "ping"
times from the clients go crazy. Exiting the client makes the ping stable
(tested under NTS4 and RedHat Linux Hedwig).
