Macros in Win16 app freeze w/slow connection

Find the name of the Win16 executable and then look in the VNCHooks settings
in the current user's registry.  One of the keys under the problem
application's entry there will be "use_DeferredUpdate" - set this to zero
and your problem should go away.

To find the name of the app, press C-A-D and note the list of processes,
then cancel, run the app, and C-A-D again!

Cheers,

James "Wez" Weatherall
