I am running the linux P5 version of the client. Occasionally, I would
need to go to Windows and so I have to reboot. Currently, I look at the
log file to wait until the last block is done, and then use "kill" to
terminate DESCHALL. Is this the right way, or is there a better one?
In particular, if I just kill my client, will my keyblock be reassigned
to someone else (I hope so).

Keys expire after two hours. That is if your key isn't returned within
two hours it's up for grabs.
