Dear Al,

First I have to confess that I do not have any hands-on experience
with these machines: I have to be honest on that.
Background of my remark is that I have heard several times about
such problems, occurring when a machine was restarted after not
having been used for a couple of weeks. It is very well possible
though that this relates only to older machines, and that the newer
types that you mention have overcome these problems.

Perhaps any machine owner is present on this list who can
assist on this issue.

Best Regards,

Lex Lennings.
