Sometimes Mushclient starts flashing (to indicate activity) on the task bar even when no activity has occured. This could be related to bug #349. I'm not running any timers, nor has anything been sent to the world that might be invisible. I know this because the received byte count on my firewall is still the same. This only happens on Windows 2000, the same copy of Mushclient does not suffer from this if I use Windows 98.

There have been a couple of other messages about this. I am not using Windows 2000 so I can't reproduce it, however I believe the "flash window" operating-system call works differently in Windows 2000. Thanks, Microsoft.

This gets even more annoying when you have the option to "autohide" the taskbar.
Everytime you minimise or even just change focus, it's about a 90% chance that the taskbar will pop up!
Anyone know if you can stop Win2000 doing that for ALL apps?

All I can suggest as a workaround is uncheck the box "new activity flashes taskbar icon" in the Configuration -> Appearance -> Output dialog box.

This is in MUSHclient.

For a particular world, press Alt+Enter, and then follow the steps above.

Oh. I thought there were 8^( a possibility to do this for any Win32-application (I do have this problem with MSVC SOMEtimes popping up my consolewindow, if a breakpoint is being hit).
In any case. Thank You. 8^).
