Sadly, seamless mode doesn't seem to work - although I can still see the 
WinXP task bar, the main window itself is reduced to a narrow strip 
across the lower part of the screen.  I wonder if this is a problem with 
the way the graphics card (an ATI Radeon) is handled?

More importantly, the USB handling is not operational, despite applying 
the fix given in the FAQ on Sun's VB site.  Any ideas, anyone?

Otherwise, I'm very impressed with VB.

Thanks for your suggestion.
