Yes, I was just starting to look at some more timing and hit on that one 
myself- I hesitate to call it luck. Any mouse activity (not just clicks) 
over the test form (but not over the title bar) freezes the program for 
several seconds.

As a working hypothesis, the "Big Freeze" I've seen at the start of 
execution isn't anything to do with form initialisation, the program 
runs fine until the pointer is moved onto the form to press the "x1,000" 

I wasn't entirely joking in my earlier rant: some loss of performance 
over a remote connection is tolerable. Lockups aren't.
