I got some answers from the team in Hungary and apparently the software is _in_deed_ automatically
sending the packets to the server over there ! The 'offline' sign in the lower left corner has nothing
to do with it:
> Hi Andreas,
> Thanks for the packets!

Well there you go. Sent them 560 packets and didn't even know it :) And in another email:
> Dear Andy,
> Please try to use the telemetry softwares automatic packet sending.
> It works for a lot of people. Actually the sign
> "Offline" in the lower left corner of the telemetry window was shown

> so we will remove it in the next release.

Still doesn't explain why the 'Server side logging' checkbox is unchecked _and_ grayed out. But I guess its all research software very much under development.
