Francis Wright has a copy of Nico Fran├žois' gnuserv port (which uses
mailslots) here:

This is the version I'm using with great success.

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.
