WinVNC & -nevershared

I can't be the first to fight with this problem, but I can't seem to get
the WinVNC server to not let a second connection attach to the server if
that server requests a shared connection.

(I'm sorry for asking this probably always asked question, but the
archives search searches such huge chunks of unrelated messages and
determines relationships that just don't seem to be supported in the
individual messages).

It appears that WinVNC doesn't understand/honor the -nevershared
parameter that Xvnc supports.  I'm not looking for high security, I'm
just looking to make sure that the current user is private.  I did get
ConnectPriority working, but if a second client asks for a shared
connection it will be dropped right in on the screen with the current
user. (That could be embarassing for the first user...)

Any good ideas?
