Hello Boyd -

I posted a patch to the X server a while ago, but I'll try and remember to
add it to the web pages:

If you patch Xvnc/programs/Xserver/dix/property.c as
follows, cut and paste should work:

>     /* Addition for RFB X server */
>     if (pWin->parent == NullWindow) {
>       extern void rfbRootPropertyChange();
>       rfbRootPropertyChange(pProp);
>     }
