I spoke a little too soon.  With the new release of WinVNC, QuickBooks does
not freeze when I mouse-click on its pop-up menus; however, it still
freezes when I click on an icon in the "Preferences" box.  This is a vast
improvement though: I can avoid changing the options when running with
WinVNC, but it is difficult to avoid the pop-up menus.
