I have also encountered this problem with clients running on systems that
are not connected full time to the net. Another selection should be added
to the config dialog that allows for Disconnected systems to only access
the proxy when told to via the fetch command.

Subject:  [rc5] bug in clients




There is a bug that could potentially cause some clients that aren't
constantly connected to the net some problems.  When rc5v2002 gets key
blocks from the server, and incounters an error half way through the
transfer it continues to scan blocks rather than stop and try to get the
rest of the blocks.  Someone who dials every 50 blocks to get more
automaticly could encounter some problems.
