so this is likely to produce error messages on the client?
this is exactly what i struggle with on Evolution - sometimes it prompts 
me to enter my password, which then fails. i have exactly the same 
problem with netscape 7.0 in (gasp!) windows and - to a lesser degree - 
  mozilla 1.1 in gnu/linux... netscape / mozilla is well known for 
overusing QUIT....


"While UNIX says ``I'm sorry you can't do that'', MacOS has exactly two 
error messages. It either goes ``eep?'' or the setup box is simply not 
there until 12 other unidentified items have been installed and three 
apparently unrelated dialog boxes have been completed. "
