I share your pain !!
As David has suggested, we have found the 7.2.1 release to be the best
so far (currently* out to try the 8.0 Beta). Whilst we still
have a few sites left on D3/NT we found the best way to solve their
problems was to migrate to D3/Linux !!!
Sad, but true
Would also suggest you take a copy of the VME "blob" - that way when
it craps out you can just shutdown D3 and overwrite the current one
with your copy ! Just make sure you take a new copy whenever something
important happens (like adding new VME accounts !!)
