I really like this one.  Solnet had this.  Last night I had a WPS
problem in OS/2 that was caused by running the client at too high of a
priority (OOPS).  If we had had a stop file, I could have pulled up an
emergency shell and created one, let it finish its block (30 minutes or
so) and moven on.  As it was I had to shut down and reboot w/ Watchcat.
