It locks it completely - you have to restart?

You mean vncPatches68k makes it worse...  oh, great, just what I needed...


OK, I've added a patch to the drag manager, but I cannot try it out myself
because (a) the machine I usually use (the Duo 2300) does not have the drag
problem, and (b) all the other ones I only get to once a week or so...

So, here's a URL for you (and anyone else who wants) to download this modified
(and totally untested - except it has not crashed my Duo i.e. acts no different 
to before I added the extra patch) vncPatches68k.

http://wrench.et.ic.ac.uk/adrian/software/vnc/vncPatches68k-dragtest.hqx

It works (one hopes!) with the alpha-2 Tridia VNC server, and when unbinhexed
will produce a file called  vncPatches68k-dragtest .


You should remove the current vncPatches or vncPatches68k from your extensions
folder, put this new drag-test version into the extensions folder, and restart.


Let me know... 

Thanks!
