"Bail" is a free control panel, it works great, and saves me tons of time
from mistaken application opening, or some rampant Internet Config goof. By
the way, it will only recognize applications for exclusion of "Bailing" for
type "APPL". So when it wouldn't allow a "no bail" selection of the Open
Transport PPP control panel (which really is an application as far as I can
tell, from the Bail experience), I manually added the strings to the prefs
in the panel and voila. ;) No more accidentally stopping PPP launch with an
errant mouseclick, it was now in the list.
