[RC5] Partial work saved during time limit shutdown?

I'm running v2.9001-477-CTR-02111721 for Solaris, and will
ocassionally set up a few machines for an overnight run with an 8
hour time limit.

I set the remote-buffer configuration as follows:

[buffers]
buffer-only-in-memory=yes
alternate-buffer-directory=/my/homedir/dnetc
frequent-threshold-checks=4

[misc]
project-priority=OGR,RC5-72
run-time-limit=8:00

[rc5-72]
fetch-workunit-threshold=1

[ogr]
fetch-workunit-threshold=1

========= Now, what seemed to happen is that the last two packets
from RC5-72 were loaded (I don't fetch those buffers) in the 6 CPU
system, then 6 OGR packets were loaded, and crunching commenced -
but when the time limit was up, the RC5 packets were not returned to
buff-in.rc5, and as far as I can tell, the last 6 were not either:

[Jan 23 07:50:11 UTC] OGR: Transferred 1 packet (71.17 stats units)
to file.
[Jan 23 09:08:06 UTC] Shutdown - reached time limit.

[Jan 23 09:08:06 UTC] OGR: Summary: 10 packets (306.26 stats units)
                      0.08:00:03.89 - [10.63 Mnodes/s]
[Jan 23 09:08:06 UTC] OGR: 0 packets are in (memory-in)
[Jan 23 09:08:06 UTC] OGR: 0 packets are in (memory-out)
[Jan 23 09:08:06 UTC] *Break* Shutting down...

It says it "saved" the packets, but where?  Is there some different
configuration I need to use for this approach?
