Many thanks for checking this out Steve. I am a little surprised it
bombed out on you after about 30 minutes. Since I found it a few days
ago it has been running 24/7 with no sign of that. Here it is running on
my latest shack upgrade, a PR-200 with 32 Mb RAM. I also have it
networked to my main machine and again no signs of any problems. At the
moment with only SatScape and the Resource Meter running I am only using
11% of the user/system resources. Of course that percentage will
increase as I bring more applications on-line.

Will keep an eye on that.

Incidentally, I have just received an e-mail from a 4X station saying
that he also had the sign on/password requirement. Most odd.
