[Udpcast] Finding the slowpoke machine when ID numbers scroll away

We have a bunch of notebooks to image and the guys
aren't willing to wait for the occassional messed up
notebook to image if it is dragging all of the others
down.  When one is showing as missing packets continually,
they want to disconnect it and carry on with the others.

The problem is that with a recent version of udpcast we
are noticing that there are many "Press any key to start"
messages filling the screen of each client, so we can't
see what node number a client is.

Is there any way to either:
  - eliminate the high number of repeated "press any key" appearances
    on the clients, or
  - get the node id of the udpcast client from the client
    console, or associate its udpast node number with an IP.
