No and Yes. It locks up in the midst of retrieving a message from the
server while operating online. I've only seen it happen right after I
send a reply. The moving green activity triangles turn red and all
stops. I can close the group, I can open another group, see headers,
but I can't retrieve messages in any groups. I have no trouble
shutting it down myself at this point.

It just happened again a few minutes ago before I read this reply.
I'll clean up the .log, set the debug switch and see what happens.
Just a thought. It seems to be somewhat related to timing, maybe
mine, in that if I wait a few seconds after posting a note I don't see
the problem. But if I'm in a hurry, click open something "right"
after I do a "Message --> Send", I'm more likely to set this off.
