Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1298557
tigervnc-server-module-1.5.0-2 has broken network buffering, causes immediate stall

I recently updated from tigervnc-server-module-1.4.3-3.fc21.x86_64 to tigervnc-server-module-1.5.0-2.fc21.x86_64 and found that VNC sessions are now thoroughly broken. The initial desktop doesn't quite fully paint, then hangs and further interaction is impossible to see (but can be checked via other means and is still happening!)
This appears to be due to this upstream bug:
Which causes the network output buffer to not be flushed completely to the client. The fix is simple:
This should affect all F21-F24 versions. Koji says that a version bump to 1.6.0 is on its way for F22-F24, which should contain this fix.
I realise F21 is now officially EOL, however it would be unfortunate if the very last late-breaking action for this package was to completely break it and leave it broken. Any chance of one last fix there?
tigervnc-1.6.0-1.fc22 has been submitted as an update to Fedora 22. https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2016-5249975cd3
tigervnc-1.6.0-1.fc22 has been pushed to the Fedora 22 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
...and is there any chance at all of not leaving F21 broken?
