I have seen this before - after having ignored the "new patches available" for a few days it did greet me one morning with a message "patches installed, now rebooting". Personally, I was not surprised at all - for one it deems to be considerable measures to me and second it matches my opinions about microsoft and their mode of conduct with their beloved costumers. Damn it, they know you guys - who else would using a normal win xp box for an internet server machine.
