I have not experienced glitches with VE Pro on the local host, but it doesn't work with slaves. Then again, neither does any other controller in that sense. I would love to see that functionality added, but I am not sure how likely it is to happen.
Ah, OK. I use mine all local at this point (my computer handles the huge templates great), so hopefully it won't be an issue. I'm really surprised that NI and VI haven't worked the issue out for remote servers though, because VE Pro is kinda used by most composers.
