You're doing great! My poor G4 saw a huge drop from ~7.1 Mkeys/s to ~1.8!

Optimizations will happen (I hope) as well as a classic Mac OS client (I 
hope), and the keyrate will climb bit by bit. There is no huge rush, 
though. Might as well settle in, folks, this one is likely to take a very 
long time...
