Bugs/annoyances Cornell 0.96a17

I found a couple bugs in the Cornell color client. They aren't big ones,
but they're annoying.

1) On occasion, when dialing a reflector the dial window will just freeze
for nearly a minute. The main window's "disconnect" icon doesn't light up.
Clicking the main task and dialer task on the taskbar repeatedly seems to
help restart it.

2) Certain reflectors will cause Cu-SeeMe to crash. It appears this is
caused when a user joins the conference. The reflector I'm having trouble
with is running ER v1.07b9. Here's the stack dump from a crash:

CU-SEEME caused an invalid page fault in
module KERNEL32.DLL at 0217:bff9a3c0.

Other annoyances? A couple minor ones, but this is a GOOD program. 24-bit
vid from my capture card isn't recognized, so I've taken it down to 15-bit
vid. The dialer reverts to the main window after a failed dial attempt.
It'd be nicer if the dialer window stayed on top, since it's the window
that'll be used next. It would be nice if we could use passwords. Other
than these gripes, I love this release.
