are there known Problems with the VNC server?

My machine runs pure "deb http://amd64.debian.net/debian-amd64/ stable main" and vanilla kernel SMP ii vncserver 3.3.7-7 Virtual network computing server software

Any thoughts?

Well last time I remember reading anything about vnc on amd64, the vnc
server was known to be broken, while the client worked fine.  I have no
idea if this is still the case or not.  By the looks of it, perhaps the
vnc server is still broken on amd64.

A search of the mailing list archive may shed some light on things.

Of course i did search before asking :-) But the posts i found where over a year old, so i doubted they were still relevant.
Seems they still are.
As proposed, i installed the fedora rpm via alien. Works fine.
