rc5des was running on a machine for weeks, since the fall of des2
it's been dumping core about every hour. I grabbed the latest version
rc5des397b and this seems to have fixed things (at least for the last 2
hours) -- running 2.0.33 on a Cyrix 686 PR200 -- 274317.97 keys/sec with
1600+ messages in /var/spool/mqueue :)
