I can vouche for that! My KVM 4 port switch has developed a nasty
habit of generating spurious clicks when the mouse is moved fast. It
very helpfully double clicked the !Restore514 for me (I had moved it
into a different directory, but was going to do some housekeeping on
other files in it). I suddenly found myself reprogramming! Having sat
motionless while the process completed, I then reprogrammed once
again to 5.16 and then renamed the !restore514 so it would not run
even on a double click. In the event, no harm was done, but it was
very easily done!
