Too bad... One last thing you could try: stop VNC service, then restart
it -- this mean that now, WinVNC is running w/o the serviceHelper nor
its tray icon -- then retry your Excel crash-test so as to see if that

(Under Win98, I've seen a program crashing iff Microsoft's PWS trayicon
helper was displayed.)
