That's not normal. I've never seen that happen. Are you running any
other unusual software? What version & service pack of NT are you

WinVNC doesn't run under Linux, only under Win32 platforms.

an entirely different animal to WinVNC, because of the disparity between
Windows and XFree86 in terms of availability of hook points & source code.
