[RC5] Various blocks still missing...

I don't know what the odds are, but I have submitted many random blocks (and 
until fetch/flush via email is working, I will continue to do so). There is 
some algorithm built in I am sure to pick which random blocks the client 
works on, but I don't know what it is.

So I guess it could be possible that a block you have submitted was already 
completed by someone else.
