Fine business John,

have you found the new client image in alpha? That solves the 
missing 'missing blocks' issue... Took me quite some testing to find it, 
but the solution was easy... somehow the client did 
not properly update the 'good block' variable. After the change I cannot 
see any difference with the original linux client any more, and 
psk500 transfers are UNBELIEVABLY fast now as soon as there 
is propagation. Which means we can increase the size of the documents 
transferred :)

Now working on adding compressed website transfer...
