The thing I found with XP running Seti, foreground
applications worked fine, but when background applications
were running, they stopped as soon as seti cuts in, so that
the user on a second machine sharing data with the first
machine could not then save their files or work - until the
first machine was being used in the foreground again.

Seti and networking would seem to be a major no-no, and we
are accessing Firebird via tcp/ip, so I would strongly
recommend getting rid of it. That sorted my problems out
instantly ...
