Not technically, and the patches to 2.5.05 Tony's done should mean that
it doesn't try in future.  We wanted to check that the DLL was validly
signed (ie: the checksums match etc) but we inadvertently were also
checking that the certificate is valid (which requires an internet
connection to check for certificate revokation).

Good idea.  The few people who I've spoken with indicate that quite a
lot of software suddenly starts to speed up when these sorts of problems
are fixed...
