He says that the modem lights blink, indicating network activity. So it
seems that the OP is using a lightweight checkout. If that is true, I
wonder what info bzr needs from upstream. In any case, having bzr
phoning home for every visited file would be irritatingly slow and he
would already notice that. So what the OP reports is very strange.
