Good point.  I put 1.3.7 back and tested.  The initial bogus servers
worked pretty much okay.

I believe I've found a fairly reliable test case that can be recreated.
I substituted the orginal "bogus" servers I used the first time with two
IP addresses that go to some dial-up accounts with static IP accounts,
where those dial-up connections would not be on-line.  I can supply you
with these IP addresses in private email if you wish to replicate what
I've done. 

With these in place I was able to get 1.3.8beta2 to also stutter. :{

What can I try next?
