It turns out there was another big bug that I released the binary with, 
related to a recent untested RAS Auto-dial feature, which made the DLL 
crash almost instantly in most programs.

I've fixed the build and this time did some extensive testing to avoid 
having another bad release. I've tested, with success, IE6, Filezilla, 
Firefox, Thundebird, Outlook Express, MIRC. As well, I'm happy to report 
that MSN Messenger 7.5 and Azureus also work fine on my system, so add 
those 2 apps to known working.

I'm still interested in Opera, other P2P clients, Chat clients, IRC 
clients and Mozilla itself.

Thanks again!

Best regards,
Alex Ionescu

- Fix WsRasLoadHelperDll:

- Make the NS Query object initalizer set TryAgain to TRUE so that RAS 
Auto-Dial will function normally.
