Thanks, Mark. Now that you mention this, I seem to recall that one of my
upgrade processes spent a long time (like 2-3 hours) doing something but
agreed to upgrade at the end. It may indeed then have been checking
It is true that my box doesn't completely freeze either, hard disk light

then 29 secs later and so on.
I'll give upgrade another try tonight...
