We have some troubles with VNC server 3.3.3r9 on bi-proc hardware compaq.
VNC 3.3.3r7 works fine. The symptoms are already described in previous
thread, http://www.uk.research.att.com/vnc/archives/2001-05/0259.html :

Watson error on Win NT 4.0 SP 6

We have a similar issue with WinVNC 3.3.3R9, running 
on Compaq WinNT 4.0 server with SP6a, IIS4.0 
Frontpage2000 extensions, MDAC2.6, Compaq NIC. We have 
about 10 servers running similar configurations, and 
had been quite happy with the previous version of 
WinVNC 3.3.3(R3?). 

With 3.3.3R9 Installation runs fine with the spiffy 
new installation tool. We run VNC on an "as needed" 
basis, so when we want to use it we go into NT server 
manager and fire up the WinVNC server service. The 
first time I used it it was fine, but after that I 
would start the VNC service, then run the VNC client 
and try to access the server. Normally the client 
comes right back with either a "server not found" or 
the server window. In this case you don't see any 
dialog boxes for a couple minutes, and then it comes 
up with a socket error message. On the server side you 
see a Dr. Watson Error. Shutting down and restarting 
the service doesn't help. 

I deinstalled 3.3.3R9 and installed 3.3.3R7, and 
everything is happy again, except for the fact that I 
really miss the new cut and paste feature R9 added. 

Looking forward to 3.3.4!

We have tried SP5 and SP6 and the behaviour stay identical.

Where is the mess ?
