Yes, the easiest way to do that is to send back an error popup as is done in 
most other error situations.

No problem, it is normal to have a few unfinished items -- I seem to have a 
lot of them these days.

Well, if you are turning it into a "monitor" with a refresh rate and all that, 
then I better get busy and finish off the bcomm interface so that we can do 
the monitoring in a separte connection :-)

Oh, nasty. Be careful.  Some people over here such as myself have been getting 
knocked out for 6 weeks with some sort of virus/flu crude.  I recommend to 
take the time needed to be sure you are recovered.


PS: I am giving a talk at the UKUUG next week, so I will be gone until Wed, 
but when I get back, I will work on having the Dir pass back similar status 
data for the SD and FD.  I'll also look into the way it will handle errors.  
If you don't hear from me by Thursday, please remind me ...
