Thanks for that Joseph - you're a star!
That was exactly the problem.
I've turned it off and the proxy is behaving itself now. :-)
I've only been running Win98 a month and hadn't noticed that setting before
(probably because Microsoft in their infinite wisdom decided to call it
"Prompt to use Dial-Up Networking" instead of "Auto-Connect").
All the best.
