Looks like RC5 was disabled. So the client didn't work on random rc5 blocks until it could make a connection and get new work.

You don't have to disable RC5 to run OGR. Default behaviour is to work on OGR and to fall back to RC5, if no OGR work is available. Because OGR get's recycled often (compared to RC5), there is not always work available.
