[RC5] Win95 client and dos boxes

Hi all,
Just a quick note for anyone who may have really sluggish rates on their
win95 clients. Any dos program running in the background without
"Background - always suspend" checked will *really* hurt the client.
ie: about a 90% reduction.

This is with niceness=0.

To programmers: Is there any way this could be fixed - that even an idle
dos session can smother the client?  Or is this just a fact of life with
a nice setting?
