Yes. There are two versions of gnuserv - one which
uses TCP/IP and one which uses mailboxes for
communication. Problems such as you have observed
will affect the former. (Mine breaks if I just tell
ZoneAlarm to shut down 'net access.) You would
probably be happier with the mailbox version.
Unfortunately, I can no longer find that one in the
place where I originally got it. Perhaps someone else
knows from where it can be downloaded nowadays.
