IE and Firefox work without hiccups. So do the rest of the 7 programs I'm
running at the moment all connected to the internet. As I've mentioned in
another reply, the CL works fine as well as Eclipse Subversive with various
SVN repositories.
I realize that there is a subtle problem and by the looks of it, it
manifests only with Tortoise. I should have gotten similar behavior when
using other programs - but I don't while in tortoise I get failures about
70-80 % of the time.
