Description of problem:
On my Athalon 1200 system vino when in use is causing much higher than expected 
cpu usage approx 45% overhead as compared with vncserver about 5% and on a freinds
K6 400 machine with vino running the over head is about 80% making it unusable
remotly and on this machine if you use vncserver the overhead is about the same as 
on my athalon ie about 5%

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Use either vino or vncserver to view a desktop remotely and see the huge 
difference in cpu usage.

Actual Results:  very high cpu overhead compared to vncserver

Expected Results:  comparable cpu overhead to vncserver

Just wondered has this been forgotten about or will it get fixed post FC5 release.
Comment 2 Johnny Hughes 2006-05-09 06:42:02 EDT
This might be related to this bug:


If so, the patch for vino-server.c listed here fixed the issue for
vino-2.8.1-1.src.rpm (the version in RHEL-4 Update 3):


Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2007-03-26 19:23:25 EDT
The fix was included in vino 2.16.0.
