Okay, thanks for the info. That sure beats labelling every node.

I think you're probably right about that. I was doing some more editing
tonight, and it was okay at about 20:00-21:00 GMT, but thereafter it
started to get really bad. After more than 7 attempts at joining a couple of 
nodes, I just gave up. Zooming in/out was also taking a really long time, and 
the yellow track dots weren't loading in half the time. Looks like CPU/HD load 
or bandwith saturation.

I guess I'll have to schedule my editing for off peak times.
