Hi Christopher. The "problem" you are discribing is actually Mma checking
the network to make sure that two kernels aren't running with the same
password. Versions up to 2.2.1 do this. The latest version 2.2.2 only
checks the network if you are connected. The only way to get around this is
to:

   1.) Take out MacTCP
   2.) Upgrade to 2.2.2

I would advise against option 2 because version 3.0 will be out very soon
now and it is going to phenominal. If you are interested take a look at

I hope this helps!
