Jason Questor asked whether the problems noted above are typical of Frame 5.
Well, opinions vary with mileage, as they say, but the above problems are
classic symptoms of GDI & Windows resource shortages; I'd say it's the
machine Frame is running on. With a mix of 10 PCs in our doc department,
some 486/33s w/ 16 MB RAM running 3.1 or 3.11 and some Pentium 590s and 566s
w/ 16 or 32MB RAM running Win95, we haven't had any of the problems
