As far as I know, all the rc5-72 work done prior to the official client
release was discarded, however any wok done by a pre-release client after
that date is being counted, even though one of the cores that was in a
pre-release client was later found to be bad.

I found it odd counting work done by a core that was 1) bad data, and 2)
done at a faster rate than a proper core, but after some irc discussion it
appeared that the DCTI crew wanted to make sure they didn't discourage
people from testing the pre-releases.
