WinVNC & -nevershared

As my message stated, ConnectPriorty works fine, but it doesn't prevent
a second user from requesting a shared session, connecting and seeing
the first user's screen.  Xvnc appears to have an option "-nevershared"
that prevents shared connections to the server.  This is what I'm
looking for - of course as time goes on I start thinking that I might as
well just fix it.  Making software NOT do something is much easier than
getting it TO do something.

Did you try setting ConnectPriority to 2?
