I recently stumbled onto VNC, and it is awesome!  Having a Win95 session
running in an X window is a dream come true.

My client machine is a Linux 2.0.33 system with Fvwm version 2.0.42a and I
have noticed that vncviewer confuses the Fvwm95 task bar.  It seems to
randomly "steal" the button of some other window.  One time VNC will be
attached to a button labeled "Netscape" and my real Netscape window will
not have a button.  Another time VNC might grab a button belonging to an
xterm window.  Sometimes, the task bar crashes when vcnviewer exits.

Has anyone else seen this?  Is it a Fvwm problem?
