The latest client I have (2.8007-458) only gets ~620kk/sec.  Any other Mac users out there have similar slowdowns, or have an answer for this?    OS 8.6 on a Beige G3/266.

I have no idea why, logically the newer, graphic-lacking version should
be faster.

I'm still using the second to last GUI version (the last one that had a
gui and you could specify how many blocks to download and upload). Since
I don't have a G4, the speedups for Altivec would do nothing for me.

So, as long as they leave the protocols the same, and RC5-64 is still
going on, there's not really any reason to downgrade to the text client.
