Disposition: This has already been taken care of about a month or two ago, when we had a redesign, and decided that PROMPTFORWORD would do at most one RINGBELLS, although it would repeatedly (at intervals) flash the window until "satisfied"'

	We''d like to register a complaint about the behavior of the code'
that asks the user to log in to a host.  After some timeout, lisp starts'
calling RINGBELLS every few seconds until the user supplies a name and'
password.  A one-shot ringbells might be okay.  '
	The most common case is that a user leaves a lisp starting up and'
goes next door to do something else while waiting.  He then returns half'
an hour later, and is beaten silly with a rolodex by the others in the office'
who have been driven screaming bonkers by the ringbells tune.'
	Please change this.'
