Win95 GUI Problems

I am currently running the Win95 GUI 1.1.

I will dial into the Internet, check my mail, etc... and load
Win95GUI. It loads initially in non-automatic dial mode. It will get the
first packet (2^22), then get the second packet (2^26). At this point, I
log off the Internet and switch Win95GUI to Automatic Dial mode. Once the
2^26 packet is done, it will dial into the Internet, get the next packet
and log off again fine. It will check the new 2^28 packet but when that is
60sec to completion, before it dials in, the Win95GUI locks up.

If I hit CTRL-ALT-DEL, Win95 reports that it is not responding and I
have to end the task. Any idea what might be wrong? I am running Win95 on
a 486DX4-75 with a 28.8k modem.

The problem is fully reproducible and happens every time I do this.
