Sorry, Len, I just have not seen that one before. I don't really know what
it could be. The only suggestion I have is to download and try Enhanced CU

behavior is duplicated there as well. That might give us some clue. Sorry,
wish I could be more help.

group in Brighton, and, while I made several trips over the pond, I also
used CUSeeMe to advantage to communicate with them there...
