Any chance you've got Cisco VPN software installed? It doesn't even  
need to be running to induce this behavior, just has to be installed.
Do a "netstat -a" and look for port 47000. It turns out Cisco locks  
it up for its own use and when rat goes to use it for its original  
purpose, mbus, rat has problems with getting ratmedia to work. This  
failure occurs silently.
