Hi Steve,
The problem is with the way the developers implemented the VNC win32
service, the service responds to the same shutdown message as winvnc as a
app does.
A service should only shut down when the NT service manager tells it to.
Services should shut down after regular apps do.
So the problem is with the way VNC was implemented as a win32 service, and
fixing it has nothing to do with the versions for other platforms.
It really needs to be addressed if VNC is to be taken seriously by larger IT
departments.

I would like to hear from some of the VNC developers on this issue.
