Looks like same bug as #188169 . I removed patch in vnc-4.1.2-17.fc7 . Let me
make next round of thinking about this issue and try fix problems whose this
patch brough.

Comment 2 Adam Tkac 2007-06-18 07:50:51 EDT
Main problem is that "grab pointer" feature in control-center grabs ctrl key. So
vncviewer doesn't get "KeyPress" event and can't handle it correctly.
Reassigning to control-center for investigation what could be done.

Comment 3 Kevin Street 2007-06-18 13:48:10 EDT
Yes, un-checking "Highlight the pointer when you press Ctrl" in
System->Preferences->Hardware->Mouse lets vncviewer in vnc-4.1.2-18.fc7 work

I encountered the same bug after upgrading my laptop to FC8. 
Installing back level vnc-4.1.2-16.fc7 solved the problem as above. 
I suggest to stick to version 4.1.2-16 in the fedora repository for FC7 and FC8
until the bug is fixed.  
Comment 5 Bastien Nocera 2007-12-19 11:02:02 EST
The feature doesn't exist anymore in F8.
