[RC5] Checkpoint file

One thing to take into consideration if the buffer files are being shared,
is if the environment is the same between all the machines.  When the client
pulls up a block that has been partially completed, if it was worked on by a
different client/build, it will start that block over from the beginning.
If you have a diverse enough pool of machines, then they should definitely
all have their own buffers.

A clean shutdown of a client will result in all work being saved
properly, checkpoint or not.  The checkpoint file is really intended to
protect against unexpected shutdowns.
