I am very sorry about that. The time I had to work on that became even
less after I returned to work after my jaw surgery and I got tired of
making excuses. The biggest hold up was that the win32 api does not
have the concept of a dynamic layout forcing me to have to find a good
way to do this without porting a lot of code. I do this easy with MFC
but I have 1000 lines of code in 2 layout managers for that... The
reason for this was so I could mimic the display of the unix tray
monitor.

Since then I have thought of a few options. I needed to learn qt for
my current work project and I know this dynamic part would be easy for
me in qt but I am not sure how to integrate that into the build
process. Also I have seen that gtk+ is ported to windows. I am not
sure that would help us use the same code. And the last method would
be only show the filedaemon status only so there was no dynamic dialog
needed.
