Dos boxes can't be hooked properly, so VNC has to fall back into a polling
mode to support them.  Check that you have Poll Foreground Window or Poll
Window Under Cursor checked in the Properties for WinVNC and that Poll
Console Windows Only is checked.  Then, when the console window is
selected/the mouse is over it, it should update correctly.
