using "pause if file present" works fine when i put the file on the auto-
mounted volume containing the users' homedirectories.

i also noticed that the official release client for mac os x is slow as
hell, the prerelease is about 5 times faster...

the "pause if running" feature also seems to work with the prerelease
client even for the Finder|Dock....

problem solved. thanks everybody who contributed!

cheers, oliver
