[THIN] Re: A challenge!

Curiouser and curiouser.

It's now happening with a Cirrus Logic card as well BUT I've realised it
only happens the first time the ICA client is fired up on the machine after
booting, using any card. If I exit and reconnect, it's fine. If I make a
connection to a non-existent published app in autoexec.bat before making the
real connection, it seems to be fine as well. Maybe I'll just do that and
get on with my life.....

Here's one for the pros.

I'm in the process of converting some elderly PCs (Mostly Pentium 75-120)
into DOS based thin terminals. All is fine unless I use an S3 based video
card, at which point there is about a 10% chance of extremely weird colours
when the NT login prompt appears. 

Picture the NT login box. Now picture it with all the white areas flashing
through a 16 colour palette, spending about 0.25 seconds on each colour.
This only seems to happen with S3 cards and I've seen it with 4 different
chipsets so far on a choice of Intel motherboards. I've ordered a few
alternative graphics cards but the only PCI models I can get have, wait for
it, S3 Savage 4 processors.

I know it's a long shot but has anyone met and solved this one in the past?

Regards
Angus
