thanks for this hint, i think i have found the problem now. The
printer manager sends two messages of the type WM_SPOOLERSTATUS, so
that whfc trys to open the sendfax dialog twice, or even reconnect
to the server during a running transmission which ends sometimes in 
strange behaviour of whfc and the server (and it may lead to the
problem of the "command error, expecting command token" bug).

I have uploaded a fixed pre release (dynamic only) on 
ftp://ftp.rgw-express.de/pub/whfc/whfc.zip but i have not updated the
web-page, because i have tested it only under Win95 (and will do some

I will try to get out a better version on friday. However if 
someone has some time to test it, if it runs on his system 
(and send me a E-Mail if it works or not) this would help me.
