Intentionally omitted here; if I mention one,
people tend to make assumptions about the other.
(That fuels myths which can persist for years!) :)

I'd rather ask both sets of users: seen this?
At this point, no platform is eliminated yet.

Still no precise recipe yet;
will file a report when I have one.

This is what happens when the bug strikes!

 > 2. Then LC itself hangs up

(Recanting this #2; it may be unrelated.
Probably #1 is the only true bug symptom.)

(OK, here goes, let's see if this email archives.)
