For trouble shooting purpose, is there any problem switching to
something else and see if the problem was gone, then consider next

John Hupp say: "I find that loading EMM386.EXE can cause Ctrl-Alt-Del
to fail.", I'm sorry but sometimes ago I did have similar experience,
and the trouble shooting takes a long time, did you mean I can't
change to FDXXMS and UMBPCI for trouble shooting?

Can you see my FDCONFIG.SYS have HIMEM and EMM386 there?
I always tracking bugs by switching my memory managers.
If your "serve their own advocacy purposes" means I want to put
advertisement here, sorry let you got this feeling, I just want to
help other people.
I sincerely ask Jack's to let me host his drivers because I want to
provide the DOS user an alternative, a choice. His QHIMEM let me have
620K base memory, I got plenty of base memory for me to run LAN
I DID NOT ask people to drop FD-HIMEM and FD-EMM386, apologize again
if you "feel" I am.
And please don't blame Jack, he have no intention to compete with
FD-HIMEM, he just want a "simpler" XMS manager.
