I checked and work_offline is already set to 0. That's good to know because
now I'm really sure this is something in either a system setting or something
left over from a Gnome setting? Ack.

Sorry, no idea; I don't use Gnome, and never have. So can't even
hazard a guess at what sort of interactions there are between Gnome & CM.

Can you actually set CM to online mode at all? Either by <Ctrl>W of by
clicking on the plug/skt icon at bottom right of CMs window.

Also, may I suggest you ask on the Claws mailing list, since there are
people far more knowledgeable, WRT CM, than me hanging out there.

Just an idea: have you got (or ever had) a dial-up internet connection
for which you had set 'Do not connect automatically'? Programs seem to
honour this setting.

You probably have 'network-manager' installed.
e.g. if you have your connection setup via dhcp in '/etc/network/interfaces'
then the above described will happen (at least here it has).

If you don't rely on the functionality of 'network-manager' you can then just
purge it.

Oh yeah, once it starts, I can switch to online mode. It's just so totally
annoying ;)

Pretty sure at this point it's not Claws, it's probably just following some
other setting somewhere.

Thanks!

Oh, sweet. That did it!

Thanks so much, I was starting to get a little...frustrated.

I don't doubt it. :-(

Maybe so, but the people on that list will have a far better idea of
what it's likely to be, I'm sure.

No problem.

<time passes>

I see Thilo hit the nail on the head. It's something I'll have to try
and remember if/when someone else suffers the same problem.
