Assume that's true.  Net based clients shouldn't ignore a network 
problem without notice, then print garbage.

If changing between Imperial and Metric requires a bandwidth, then
whenever there's no bandwidth, (whatever the cause, a busy network, a
DOS attack, etc.), an error message should explain that the connection

NB: on 7/15/06 I noted that when 'ppp' was offline, (no outside IP),
X4WP behaved correctly for a client; there was no garbage data and it
had a tooltip saying "cannot update weather data".  The question of
offline vs. online is settled.  Rather this bug occurs when an
existing connection is too busy.
