thank you for this report. This bug has been fixed upstream in https://git.gnome.org/browse/vinagre/commit/?id=69acae5330c848cb7bf4094ebce34ccad798c6ca. The patch fixes the bug also in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. I'm proposing to fix this bug in upcoming minor release.

Comment 7 ilya 2017-03-01 16:59:00 UTC
And when it will be fixed?

Comment 8 Marek Kašík 2017-03-02 09:46:10 UTC
I've proposed the fix for 7.4 so if everything goes well then you will find it in 7.4 release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Comment 9 ilya 2017-03-02 14:21:48 UTC
And when 7.4 will be released? I think this is a critical bug: i can't work with vinagre.

Comment 10 Marek Kašík 2017-03-02 14:34:12 UTC
I'm sorry, I can not comment on when the release will be available.
