I think I may have found an issue. When I fired up ab3 with my laptop but
was out of range to the wireless AP in our house, I couldn't get updates.
No biggy.

When I came back in range though and fired everything else up again (IM's,
web browser, etc) they all worked. But the ab window I had left open
because I was tinkering with was another issue.

I clicked on the 'check for updates' button and it returned instantly with
'could not contact the server'. I had to completely close the program and
re-open it before it made a genuine attempt to go out and check and *gasp*
found new things!

AB caches the updates information it retrieves, so changes to updates while
AB is running will NOT be retrieved again. However, if the initial check
times out, AB should be re-checking when the "Check for Updates" is
manually initiated again. It sounds like this is not behaving correctly, so
I'll look into it.
