Much too late for this cycle.

Comment 2 James Manning 2003-01-13 15:45:39 UTC
Here's the VNC server from RHL 8.0 (same VNC as Phoebe) demonstrating the bad
behavior for terminal windows.

I'll go ahead and make it an attachment, too.

Note that graphical things that don't have text-based areas (like Kate, the KDE
editor) work fantastically (BitBlt usage broken, maybe?)

Expected it would be deferred, just wanted to get it logged before I forgot for
yet another cycle :)

Oh, that's already logged I think.

Note that 'vnc-3.3.3r2-43' is actually TightVNC right now.
