    app does not detect when I log in on the workstation. there is no warning if a connection is lost, so I never really know if it is connected.

    Always goes offline when running in the background which makes it very unreliable. Free IM apps work better. Get your act together IBM... Can't even use the "Report Error" function, as it has no to address when trying to send.
