One one PC with the GW 8 client installed with no previous client
installed,(installed to c:\program files\novell\grpwise) I try to mark an
unopened item as "Read", client locks up with hour glass mouse curser
however I can close the client by clicking the x in the upper right corner.

On another PC that has the client "upgraded" and it's installed to
c:\\novell\groupwise, I have no issue with marking an unopened item(s) as

Both PC's are WinXP, logged into both workstation with admin rights, the
only difference is that one is new install of the 8 HP2 client and the other
is an install over the top of 7.0.3
