[AG-TECH] Rat MBUS funny

We see this failure regularly as we have an over enthusiastic operator
who drags the RAT across the screen too quickly and can easily create
this error.

I'm glad someone else sees this - I sometimes feel we are the only site
with problems!

Subject: [AG-TECH] Rat MBUS funny

I spotted a funny behaviour with RAT on windows yesterday.

If you pick up the RAT window with the mouse and waggle it back and
forth for 30 seconds or so you sometimes get a the ratmedia program
falling over with a "MBUS error" pop-up window.

I managed to reproduce this with both AG3.0.1 on XP and AG2.4 on
Win-2000 in both cases I was in a venue with background music playing so
there was a lot of mbus traffic to update the level meters and both
systems were dual CPU.

These are a fairly contrived set of circumstances and  Ive never seen
this in a real meeting but it looks to me that the mbus code needs
tweaking a bit.
