Oscar, since you're checking to see if the net connection is up for the
DOD stuff, couldn't you automatically have it do a -flush and -fetch
when it finishes a block AND the net connection is up?  I know that
this would be a kludge w/ the current client, but at least it would
work.  It also wouldn't be a problem for DOD users.  Of course, I'm
looking forward to a multithreaded GUI version, too.  ;-)
