Changing version to '11'.

Could someone please fix that??? Got the latest version and just can get an 640x480 vnc, which is really annoying!!
Would it be possible to check what happen if you start the server with "-extension RANDR" parameter, please?
That does fix it! Thanks a lot!
It seems your desktop manager resizes the desktop via RandR. You have to configure your favourite desktop manager to not to do it or disable RandR as written in comment #5. Closing.
