Exactly why I am now writing. 1.5.9 wasn't stable enough to
leave on someone's computer, so I couldn't debug it.
If 1.5.10 is (and I have two installed now). I'm hoping it's
stable enough that I can provide valuable feedback instead
of having to roll back. I'm very grateful for all the
work done on the Windows clients. And I also have to
keep the shop running, so there are limits to what I can
install. (I don't have a Windows testing environment...
my team doesn't use it.)

In other news... having reread the release notes, it finally
dawned on me that the Stats value has to be added to the
registry. Please ignore the ramblings of my previous post.
I was just confused. But... in the Advanced setup, it's not possible
to set the value above 10000. If I set it to 30000 in the registry,
and then look in the Advanced tab... it shows 10000.
If I try to change it in the Advanced tab, it sets the registry
value back to 10000.

I've discovered that if I update the registry with regedt32,
leave it alone and ignore the value shown in the Advanced tab,
the values seems to stick in the registry. Am I missing something
to get the value shown in the configuration tool to match what's
in the registry?
