Some time ago I created a new thread called Suspect MacOS 7.5.3 or Open
Transport in which I stated that I was having trouble running CUSM or
Enhanced CUSM on a PCI Macintosh 7200 running MacOS 7.5.3 and Open
Transport. The symptoms were slowdown of the Graphical User Interface and
total lock-up whenever I tried to speak. My only work-around seemed to be
to go back to MacOS 7.5.2 and Classic Mac networking.

I have pleasure is announcing for the benefit of those who may have a
similar problem that my problem is now cured by the upgrading of my IP
client to FreePPP 2.5v2. I am now able to run system 7.5.3 and Open
Transport and my Graphical User Interface is responsive and there is no
sign of lockup when I speak.

Thank you to those of you who replied with suggestions and to those who
said they were experiencing the same problem (I replied to each of the
latter individually - if I missed anyone my apologies, I hope this
announcement will suffice).
