Yep, the psycho thingie is a real problem. Maybe we should
convince those people that dnet is not seti :)

One thing I found out: Java applications (especially development
environments) seem to suffer from a running dnet client. On
one computer of an employee I configured the client to pause when
running java, javaw or netide (NetBeans executable), and now the
employee and me are both happy.

>HTH to understand :)
