I've installed and reinstalled

WinSCP version 3.7.4
SFTP (v3)
Norton Commander ingerface (but I.E. also has the same problem)

PROBLEM: when I log into the ganymede server, the WinSCP screen refreshes every 5-8 seconds. It not only refreshes the documents but the entire applicaton.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Here is my log...

1) Does the refreshes start immediatelly after you login or after you do something?
2) Does it happen for all servers (if you connect to any other)?
3) Can you describe better to me what do you mean by "It not only refreshes the documents but the entire applicaton."
4) Can you try it from another computer? Preferably from some with different configuration.
