I guess this is a duplicate of bug 1309445.
Comment 3 Jan Grulich 2016-10-18 05:45:13 EDT
Please re-test with RHEL 6.8 (including newer tigervnc and xorg-server). Also install tigervnc-debuginfo package to get a better backtrace.
Comment 4 Jan Grulich 2017-01-16 08:14:01 EST
Useless backtrace, will be probably fixed by doing rebase.
Comment 5 Jan Grulich 2017-01-19 08:48:41 EST
Sorry I was wrong, there won't be any rebase in RHEL 6, I thought this bug is for RHEL 7.
