I had a similar problem and I'm not sure if I ever really understood what
was going on. I found that Splus would hang if I rebooted the machine; I
had to uninstall and reinstall the software to get it to run. This was
version 4.0 with the release patch 3 downloaded from the internet. I
informed Mathsoft support and they sent me a CD with version 4.0 release 3
(i.e. should be better than a patch). I haven't had any problems since
installing that.
