Actually the situation is even worse than I described below. When I  
try to restart Mathematica after force quitting it, I get the message  
that the 2-user limit on this license has been reached. Contact  
Wolfram Research or an authorized Mathematica distributor for  
information on upgrding your license configuration.

It seems that I have to restart my computer to be able to use  
Mathematica again, which is really getting somewhat ridiculous.
