...and now I know why: I had set the number of virtual CPUs to 2 - when
doing so, VMWare with Bluebottle occupies all available CPU resources on
the Host machine - although the Inspector in Bluebottle reports an
average of 1.8 percent. It works grate when using only one virtual CPU
(Which is the default for Windows 98, I think...).
