no it can not.   The client is not optimized for G5 and thus
it does less and a G4+ running 1.42 GHz.  A dual G5 does 40K keys a second.

I own BOTH a dual G4 and Dual G5 and a P4 (Ok granted a P4 does suck at RC5)

yes it happens.   I have had that happen to me also.   However you should ALWAYS
duplicate the out file before a large flush.  If that happens do what i do  and move a copy
back in and flush again.  works great.
