Additional Comments

I used the Ctrl+C trick to improve startup times. But, after the third or fourth time I used the trick the program started up as a small box. The box is the icon from the upper left hand corner or the normal window. If you click on the box the normal "window menu" opens up, but the minimize and maximize options are greyed out. Also, the box cannot be resized, rendering NL unusable. Closing NL and restarting the application will not fix the problem. Neither will uninstalling and reinstalling the application through wine.
