[THIN] Re: The slowest Start button on the planet - guarantee d

I know the document really well.  It's printed out and referred to often.
Great doc.

I thought Q269214 was the hotfix for the ICA Browser issue that SP6 caused,
but I'm going off the top of my head and will look it up.

Oooh! Flashbacks! Neil might be remembering Q269214. He reminded me of the
famous Rick Dehlinger tuning document where I found it. Mike, that document
is the gospel for NT4/MF1.8 configuration. Fish it out of thethin archives.
Something in that document will fix your problem.

Run keys are all clean.  Come on Neil, you're close - think!  Haha.  Maybe
you should have fish for lunch today (on me).  I hear it is supposed to be
good "brain" food and helps with memory. ;p

Something is nagging at me about this - I've seen it on NT4 with Metaframe,
but can't recall what it was, or how I got around it - but I definitely
remember it happening.

I dunno why, but I keep thinking about either a hotfix, or a Citrix registry
value (something with a z in it?).

Good thinks to check are anything under the run keys either in HKLM or HKCU.
