No doubt. But many other people have not had this happy an
experience. Check the archives of this list for many reports.
In particular, trouble often occurs after a file is opened
successfully; sometimes there is a failure when it is saved,
sometimes when it's used in generating a book, etc. It's
not totally predictable. But it's something to check, first.
>Frame has often had trouble with networks,
So it appears we agree.
>but to say it has "never worked" over a network is hyperbole
Please! Spare me the misquote! I said "*never* worked properly",
and leaving off the qualifier is quite a misrepresentation!

Nope. The point is, she can quickly determine if that is the
problem by *trying* it locally. If the problem goes away, she
can continue with her project. If it doesn't, she needs to
continue troubleshooting. It's a quick and easy test to make.
