Upgrading will get rid of your old bugs, but clearly it'll only introduce 
some new ones. On windows 2.1.2b and 2.2 reside next to each other 
cleanly; you might install 2.2 and see if you have the same problems. 
Either way, we would like you to file a bugzilla bug report and include 
your logs so we can track down what's happening.

I'm not sure exactly what you mean by this, since the venue is the room, 
you always connect to that to use the AG. There are other servers which 
provide access to various rooms/venues.

I believe the answer is, todays showcase is available and on the 
agscheduler provided by ncsa, tomorrow and friday is not on the AG.
