Bug#427626: x11vnc: keyboard and mouse clicks do not get through anymore with last testing libc&xorg
Justification: renders package unusable
Since I upgraded my testing distribution to the last libc&xorg yesterday,
x11vnc from testing does not seem to work anymore.
When I run it, I can connect to the remote desktop but the on the local viewing
machine the desktop itself does not get screen updates anymore.
I am obviously using a VNC client (I tested several of them) on the viewing
Also, typing on the keyboard does not seem to have any effect,
but keys do appear on the X11 console, and so do mouse clicks, etc.
It seems to be just a screen update problem.
I downloaded the latest x11vnc source 0.9.1 (and 0.9.2) from its project
site and they both work as expected after I compiled them.
