Response to: "End Hanging Disconnect" application

This actually addresses a different bug which I've yet to encounter. Rarely, when you disconnect your dialup connection from the 'Net, the modem/drivers will remain in a perpetual "disconnecting..." state. Powercycling the modem doesn't help, very rarely does killing the actual process help, and typically, the solution is to reboot the computer to reload the drivers.
