  A seemingly new Internet Explorer bug has been found.  Details can be
found at http://www.focus-asia.com/home/tjc/ghosting/  It basically only
causes minor annoyances.  On my machine (nt4, sp3, ie4 4.01, active
desktop) it caused explore.exe (Windows Explorer) processor usage to go
up to about 95%.

This is also effective on Windows 98 (4.10.1681) _without_ active desktop.
I thought some of the readers might appreciate source so I'm including it
below.  Note I also decided that black was more ominous than white.  :)


// zealand.java - implements "ghosting" for IE with Active Desktop
import java.applet.Applet;
import java.awt.*;
public class zealand extends Applet
    public void init()
    { apd = size();
      draw();       }
    public void paint(Graphics g)
    { update(g);    }
    public void update(Graphics g)
    { flick(g);     }
    private void draw()
    { Graphics g = getGraphics();
      update(g);    }
    private void flick(Graphics g)
    { g.setColor(Color.black);
      g.fillRect(0, 0, apd.width, apd.height);    }
    public zealand()
    {    }
    Dimension apd;
    int x;
