I use it whilst on travel too, however i do not have a similar problem as
described by James but i've noticed that simple operations like `bk vi
filename` take extremely long;

zwane@r3000 ~ {0:0} bk version
BitKeeper version is bk-3.2.3 20040818155841 for x86-glibc23-linux
Built by: in /build/3.2.x-lm/src
Built on: Wed Aug 18 11:18:31 PDT 2004
Running on: Linux 2.6.10-R3000

zwane@r3000 linux {0:0} time bk cat user.h
#include <asm/user.h>
0.032u 0.004s 0:40.15 0.0% 0+0k 0+0io 1pf+0w

zwane@r3000 linux-2.6-bk {1:0} time bk get Makefile
Makefile 1.551: 1318 lines
0.074u 0.014s 0:32.79 0.2% 0+0k 0+0io 0pf+0w

My hostname is fixed, i do not have a default gateway set and none of the
nameservers listed in /etc/resolv.conf are reachable. This could very well
be a local configuration problem but you did ask for people who use BK
disconnected to stand up =)
