I'm not sure.  The production environment still experiences this issue, 
it's just that I have trouble duplicating it in a test environment.  
However, the traffic in that production environment is significantly 
heavier so it would be most difficult to create a similar environment in 
a test realm with only one or two XP machines.  I'm still not sure what 
causes the daemons continue running on the server end.  I'll do my best 
to try and figure that out, Jerry, as I know it must be difficult when 
even the person reporting the bug can't consistently reproduce the 
problem.  I suppose for now you can nix the bug report, until I've been 
able to sufficiently determine what causes this problem.  Thank you!
