winvnc can't function while the 'Close Program...' dialog box is open
because it takes over everything else and forces itself to the top... Good
behavior when you're trying to wrestle the system back from an errant
program, but not useful when you're vncing. IIRC there was a discussion
about this before --- everything has been discussed before it seems now ---
this is a quite high traffic list ;-)

but that doesn't explain why the first time it worked as you would expect
and the other times it didn't let the ctrl-alt-del through... maybe winvnc
learns it's not a good thing to do
