making CometExplorer and especially KeyBuild work better

first: when comparing CometExplorer against Windows Explorer... it seems that CometEx is giving the size of the .I00 index, not the data file.... I will leave to others whether this should indicate the total size of the file (sum of data and all indices) or the size of the data portion of the file (my preference)

Comet shows 1.97 GB as the size of RCVHISBK
2014-08-05 13:32 4,932,195,000 RCVHISBK
2014-08-05 13:32 1,971,798,768 RCVHISBK.I00

Comet shows 2.46 GB as the size of RCVHIST
2014-08-01 09:02 6,433,466,400 RCVHIST
2014-08-01 09:02 2,645,038,768 RCVHIST.I00


I've gotten into a situation where I cannot tell if KeyBuild is still running.... however this time around I've checked the Windows Task List and saw that KeyBuild.exe was executing along with CFam.exe... so it's still working, and if I check the dates above for RCVHISBK via MS Windows Explorer.. I see that the times keep going up.. so.. it's still writing to the file.

I think the two things that would make this all work better are:

1) change CometEx so that the sizes of files are the size of the data portion of the file
2) change the KeyBuild program so that the progress bar keeps cycling thru the boxes (16 of them?) until the run is finished.

In this way we'll get good numbers for sizes and a good indication of the program progress!
