It's more than just a startup problem. If the 416 client is running with
*just* the tray icon showing, Eudora will, at seemingly random times,
freeze up until the client's killed. (It often starts just fine) A
CTRL-ALT-DELETE shows both Eudora and the client with a [not responding]
tag after a little while. Killing the client wakes Eudora back up.

Note that if the client actually has a window open it works OK, which is an
adequate workaround in some situations.
