vnc.so doesn't seem to work with newer Xorg releases (e.g. the one in
Debian 5.0), the X server crashes soon after VNC connect.  I was
wondering if there were any plans to support these releases, or whether
the non-free version of realvnc supported them?

A quick look at the backtrace seems to suggest a problem with pointer
events (I was wiggling the remote mouse at the time).



The trace is from 4.1.1, Debian 5.0 on a 32bit install using "intel:
Driver for Intel Integrated Graphics Chipsets"
