Strange problem (security?) and Using as NT service

I will try it this weekend.

I believe it was from the clipboard.  It was a mail message that I had worked
on late that afternoon, cutting some extremely long headers off of a message
so that I would have just the text left to send.  The only thing that appeared
on my screen were the headers that I had cut.  Presumably they were on an
internal clipboard somewhere, waiting in case I wanted to paste them.

I can´t repeat that.
Here, with NT 3.3.2 R5 Client and NT 3.3.2 R2 Server, it is not possible to
overwrite the client memory with some "goodies" of the server. I made the same
thing you did, I tried to copy something from the server etc. The paste-memory
of the client was the same everytime: Something I copied some time ago in
another program of the client.
So, can´t repeat your you can?

I am also interested in the problem below.  I don't want to leave my
NT workstation unlocked, but can't access it MYSELF from anywhere else.
However, I have discovered a very strange and worrisome thing.  When I
tried to log on again just now, and was again unable to get past the
login screen, I went on to do other things on my PC.  The first thing
I tried to do was paste something into my notepad window.  I forgot to
do a 'copy' before I did the paste...
and guess what appeared on the screen?  About 25-30 lines of a mail message
that MAY have been on my screen at the office, and may not have been.  I had
sent it some time before leaving and it is possible that the screen containing
the mail was minimized.  Or possibly not even minimized.
Now, why on earth should that be?  Does this mean that anyone failing to connect
to us just needs to paste to notepad to find some goodies?
