Sorry to drag this back up but I thought this would be important to people
mining bitcoins.

Currently there is a Trojan doing the rounds that nicks your wallet.dat and
as a result, gets access to all of the bitcoins contained within. Stick your
wallet.dat in a slightly safer place, like a truecrypt volume, if you think
you might be at risk.
