ConnectPriority - can't share Windows NT VNC server

I can't seem to get Connect Priority working like

To quote the documentation:

ConnectPriority indicates what WinVNC should do when a
non-shared connection is received:
0 = Disconnect all existing connections.
1 = Don't disconnect any existing connections.
2 = Refuse the new connection.

On my NT server, I put the DWORD ConnectPriority in
gave it a value of 1.

I stopped and started the VNC service and connected my
Linux box.  As long as I specify -shared, or click the
sharing button on a Windows client, I can connect
other clients and share the server.  I connected my
Linux box and a Windows 2000 laptop.

As soon as a client tries to connect that does not
have sharing enabled, it disconnects all existing
connections and logs in.

Is this not working as the documenation said it
should?  I can't enable sharing on every viewer.

Please advise, oh wise and mighty group members.
