This thread surfaces every now and then, and several good and worthy
approaches have been aired.  I have a question about another approach: refers to a
hotfix available in msnp32.dll, the network provider dll for Win9x, which
is supposed to address this problem (hit <esc> or enter a bogus domainname
to bypass login security).

My question is:  has anyone gotten and tried this hotfix?  If so, does it
actually deliver?
