You do need to use a checkpoint file, It's the only way blocks can be 
saved
in 
the WIN32 client if you force the application closed (which is I think 
what 
shtting down the machine running the hidden client does) 
 
Check point files work on the win32 client I'm running here, so you should
be 
OK now even if it was broken before.
