Hi - We're using w3lib 4.0 on win95 quite happily - a fine piece of

One odd little side-effect: When the library is active, some 16-bit apps
are unable to do anything. For example, when running a simple GET in our
app, I launch a 16-bit version of MS-Access. It starts up, but then
hangs. If I exit the app doing the GET, MS-Access comes up.  Otherwise,
Access is in limbo indefinitely.

Regular winsock apps are not causing this behavior. 

Thanks for any help!
