I haven't encounter such problems.  You might like to update to version
3.3.2, which is the currently available version, or update to 3.3.2 R2
when it comes out in a few days time, and see if that helps.

I don't recall there being any problems like this reported before, though.
When you say "doesn't terminate the IP connection properly after use",
what do you mean?  You mean when a viewer exits, or when WinVNC quits?
