I think there is a problem with the splash screen and gnuclient/server.
I do not know if this problem exists with emacsclient/server, but it
would be good if someone tested. Below is a description from a message
in help-emacs-windows. I believe this is enough to describe the problem.
I have tested this with
In GNU Emacs 220.127.116.11 (i386-mingw-nt5.0.2195)
Here is a copy of the message:

Thanks for your response. I've trimmed down my .emacs/.viper files to
the minimim that I think I need to get viper working. So they look like:
;; load viper
(setq viper-mode t)
(setq viper-inhibit-startup-message 't)
(setq viper-expert-level '5)
For example, I open a .txt file (bound to gnuclientw) from the Desktop,
Emacs comes up, shows the EmacsW32 splash page, and then the .txt file.
The status bar shows (V). I try the 'j' & 'k' movement keys and it
inserts characters. The odd thing now, is that I'm trying this as I type
this email in Outlook, so I'm switching back and forth and reopening the
file. In one test, I opened the file, switched to Outlook, switched back
and it worked?!? It seems like there was a delay in processing/entering
viper-mode. That may be why C-z or M-x viper-mode doesn't fix it
immediately and it seems like playing around with M-x does. I'm guessing
that whatever is causing the delay finally completes (5-10 seconds or

My first thought was gnuserv or viper mode, but I get the two "GNU
Project" messages while its still inserting characters. Is there some
other background process that's running?
Thanks for testing. I can reproduce the error here now. I will try to
look into it.
It seems like this has something to do with the splash screen. If I turn
off the splash screen the problem disappears.
To turn off it do
M-x customize-option RET
Customize variable: inhibit-splash-screen
and then set inhibit-splash-screen to "on" and save the value.
Does the problem disappear for you if you do this?
