We pulled down the new build (Jan 11th). The Starbucks demo now brings
up coordinates. Great!

However, any test on the results in a
pop up window asking how many additional pages I'd like to load. When
I enter '1' I get a new popup window that says:

Piggy Bank Loading additional Pages:
   Please wait while this screen sraper loads additional relevant web

If I enter 5, then I get five urls in the list of relevant web pages.

What is happening? I see similar responses to other scrapers like the
WorlCat library example. Is this a firewall issue? Something else?
