I am using the latest version of WSAD 5.1 and am getting tired of WSAD
bombing out on Windows 2000, Windowx XP and on Linux SuSE 8.2. Seems
to happen when I open a JSP page but sometimes randomly.

WSAD is totally up to date on all three systems (through online
update).

Considering that it can take up to 10-20 minutes to get the Workbench
and WAS test environment (Portal Server) started this is a huge
disincentive to use WSAD.

IBM - ARE YOU LISTENING TO YOUR CUSTOMERS?

Yes? Then why is this allowed to continue?
