   Ok, there are two problems, I guess.'
   First, there are these odd msgs that suddenly started appearing.  I don''t know why they didn''t show up under the old chat, actually.  Bill will probably know more.'
   Second, Bill asserts that the chatwindow is the natural place for messages.  I tend to agree in light of the current overuse of the prompt window (I sort of like JonL''s suggestion for a separate error stream which would usually go to a scrollable window), and since these msgs should be rare occurances that the user needs to see.'

In the <lispcore>next> loadup of sept 21, my chat window was getting the error message "[PUP error in CHAT connection]Port IQ full" appearing in the middle of the chat typescript window.  '
mjs 24-Sep'
I have noticed the following messages':'
"[Pup error in Chat connection]"'
"Gateway Output Queue full"'
"No route to host"'
"No route to that net"'
"Gateway output queue connection limit exceeded"'
"Port IQ full"'
