Sorry, brain is not working tonight. I reversed extranet and intranet in
my previous response. Add "borrow" to your extranet queue. You might as
well add it to the intranet queue too if you want it to be able to use
those 876Kb if they're available. Sorry again for the noise. And yes,
the description of borrowing from the parent queue is ofc correct too...
Ireally should stop answering these questions at this time of night... ;-)
