Hi Christian,

Just for curiosity's sake, if you use the 2.2.0alpha version of the
Shrew client, does the problem still occur?

Note that I'm not suggesting that you run alpha-quality code on your
customer's machines, I'm just asking because it may provide the Shrew
developers more information if the 2.1 code base does not work and the
2.2 does.
