<div>Well, in the mean time, the GUI is clear in such circumstances even if not functional. (it shows that it's "busy" currently attempting to execute an action and then following a brief (30sec) wait time shows it is not being successful, and there is a functional [cancel] button to allow the user to terminate it). I will have to attempt this from behind a different/better firewall (home, not work where I am presently), and let you know.
