This is not the same as the previous Zonealarm bug.
After installing the newest v0.3.1-RC1, and running the
game fullscreen, I went to start a new game. After
pressing OK on the galaxy setup screen, the game hung.
The computer was still working seemingly, as caps lock
and the mouse were working, but I FO was nonresponsive
and there was no response to alt-tabbing or ctrl-esc or
windows keys, or ctrl-alt-del. I believe the problem
is that FO fullscreen doesn't play nice with other
windows wanting to take the focus while FO is doing
something non-interactive (repeatedly trying to connect
to server in this case). I waited for a few minutes,
hoping the server connect failed message would pop up,
but never did. I eventually had to hard-reset.
There should be a way to cancel attempting to connect
to server, or the UI should be otherwise responsive
while this is happening. Alternatively, the game
should just not hang when zonealarm does it's popup.
A resolution of "fix it in zonealarm first" isn't
adequate. The first experience using the game will be
this for people running windows and zonealarm, which is
