NT/Exceed D.O.S.

This is regarding Hummingbird's Exceed X emulator v5 (and possibly v6)
running on Windows NT.  I haven't tested Win95/98.

The Exceed X server allows inbound TCP connections on port 6000 from the XDM
host.  If someone uses telnet from the XDM host to connect to a PC running
Exceed on port 6000 and enters any garbage text, the X server will hang and
the Exceed session is frozen for good.

I have notified Hummingbird via their tech support web site but have not
received a response yet.
