Annoying Floppy Drive Seeks when Starting Delphi/BDE App on NT Terminal Server/Citrix Metaframe

Does anyone know why when I start my application the client PC's floppy drive is seeked.

The application is coded in Delphi and uses BDE to connect to Oracle.  It is run on the client via a Citrix Metaframe ICA connection.

Please note that the floppy seek does not occur when I log in to the ICA session, but when I start the application.

This is driving me mad.

Some things to look at:

1.  If you trace through the startup code (F7) can you tell where the seek is taking place?

2.  Did you load any resources for the program from floppy (BMPs, icons, etc.) during development? You might look through the .RES file and see if there's a mention of the A:\ drive in there (I don't think there should be but it's something to check).

3. Are you using any third-party components that could be checking the floppy in their startup code? I'd trace through the code a bit to see exactly where it's happening.
