Hi Don, hi James,

we had a similar poblem, some dispsub processes used up all the cpu-time
of a dual-prozessor F50 after the connection to some Netview X-Clients
was lost. We didn't use the TEC at all.

Advice was to look in


for the following lines

Action "start_dispsub"    {
      Command -Initial -Shared "${dispsub:-/usr/OV/bin/dispsub}";

(usually at the end of the file) and to delete the string "-Initial",
thus preventing dispsub from beeing started at Netview-Client-startup.

Hope that helps

Michael Seibold
