Under RISC OS, a program can start off another task to run concurrently
with it using the SWI
Wimp_StartTask. However, Desktop Hacker
can only hack one task at once, so when it detects this happening it will
ask you which of the tasks you wish to hack.
If you click on 'Follow', Desktop Hacker will forgot the old task it was following, and hack the new one. This is usually what you want with games, as generally it is a Wimp front end task launching a main game task, and the latter is what you want to hack.
If you click on 'Stay', Desktop Hacker will ignore the new task and
continue with the existing one. On some versions of the WIMP, this may
sometimes not work and cause Desktop Hacker to follow no task at all, due
to the odd way
Wimp_StartTask works. So it's usually best not
to choose 'Stay'.
