I can confirm this.  I had tried _most_ parts except that one a few
hours ago and didn't spot it, so thanks for the "heads-up", John.  

Is it a "feature" that the program takes over the desktop?  By that I
mean, I wanted to see what resources the program was using, but couldn't
ctrl+Fx to another desktop where I had "top" running.  When the program
is running nothing else can be done on the station.  Good to control
little kids I guess, but makes it hard to administer the PC until you
kill it.
