I've had problems with mIRC and ICQ startup.  I can stop the 
problem by useing the "stop client operations" option.  it is also an 
intermitant problem, it seems to only happen after the client has 
been working in the background for quite some time, I've not had 
the time to see if a hidden client has any effect, or if it happens 
before or after a block flush.  version info:
