  Chris, and Dave,
  This issue has been around for some time, I even reported this as a bug
(#1050). As of yet, there was no solution for it, and I still have to run
the dnetc5-client on my dual-processor Octane... 
  Even running  the new client as a normal user rather than root freezes
the machine!
