[Rpcemu] Networking: an interesting discovery (I think)

Having now got networking running reliably on 0.8.10/5.19 (and having
practically gone potty in the process), it seems to be the case, on my
system at least*, that where network-enabled RPCEmu fails to connect
with the network bridge on repeated restarts, the best solution is to
reboot the PC.
Then, after waiting for the PC harddrive to calm down, launching
RPCEmu with networking enabled results in a connection, if not on the
first, then usually on the second and invariably on the third,
No other procedure has been consistently successful, neither
re-entering RISC OS's Configure-Network-Internet settings between
startups, nor using RPCEmu's File-Reset to shut down, nor reselecting
RPCEmu's Settings-Networking-Internet Bridging between startups, nor
enabling/disabling Reduce CPU Usage. But PC rebooting has for several
days now invariably done the trick. And no, I don't know why/how!
