That ratio, 5/240, is very similar to what I am experiencing here.
I have around ~350 different students using loncapa over three courses, 
of whom  ~100 have  passed their first due date with only about 5 or 6 
reporting difficulties.  I have responded to each with the usual buff 
about enabling cookies and javascript and checking firewall settings. 
One student replied that as a result they overcame their difficulty.
Others have either also succeeded, used a different computer or 
vanished.  One is a persistent problem and a "wise-guy" too boot.  A 
class of 100 is due Friday night (the 13th, as it happens).
A cure-all recipe would indeed be welcome.   

I don't believe I currently need Java as my current sets have no 
applets.  Correct me if I am wrong about that.

Guy has some useful comments about caching that perhaps he will 
post/repost here. 

Going to get out my goalies mask for friday.
