Created attachment 461881 [details]
Screenshot of a VNC connection.

Description of problem:
I tried to use vino, x11vnc, and tigervnc to view my desktop on a 1680x1050 resolution, none of them worked. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Reproducible so long as the user has a monitor to support a large enough resolution.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set the resolution higher than 1440x900.
2. Install and run a VNC server.
3. Connect to the VNC server from another computer.
Actual results:
The screen displays complete static/gibberish. The mouse can still click objects but the user has no idea which object is which.

Expected results:
The screen should display without the corruption.

Additional info:
May have a relation to bug 653270.
Comment 1 Nicholas Patrick (Peter) Solin Jr. 2010-11-23 16:46:32 EST
Why was this changed to tigervnc? I only tested it on tigervnc once, and have tested it on vino and x11vnc a plethora of times (with vino much higher still than x11vnc). This bug applies to VNC servers as a whole, not a single VNC server.
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2010-11-23 20:51:08 EST
Because tigervnc is what we ship. The 'vnc' component is a legacy component from much older Fedora releases.
Comment 3 Nicholas Patrick (Peter) Solin Jr. 2010-11-23 21:47:07 EST
Ah, thank you. Sorry for the trouble then.
Comment 4 Adam Tkac 2011-04-12 08:10:25 EDT
This is a bug in the Windows viewer, not in the TigerVNC server.

Closing as notabug.
