  rc5-os2-bovine was basically a stright port of the unix bovine client
done by Henry Miller. There were some minor things he didn't address thou,
such as signal handling (Ctrl+C) and setting the correct idle class, those
are fixed with rc5-os2 which I ported.

  Well if your using the rc5-os2 client, then make sure you use the -o 1
switch, that'll make sure that the client is only running when the
computer is idle. That should fix it.
