There's all manner of things, even on a client PC, where pulling the network up and down is going to disrupt things (NTP, software updates, maybe even X if it's using the LAN address rather than localhost). If that behaviour wasn't configurable, I wouldn't use it. I want computers to be accessible by other computers on the LAN, whether or not someone's logged into them. -- (This box runs FC5, my others run FC4 & FC6, in case that's important to the thread.) Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored. I read messages from the public lists.
