Good call; fvwm95 can be configured to use either the title bar name
(default) or the icon name on the task bar button.  Mine was set to the
icon name, as you suggest.  I changed it to use the title bar name,
restarted the window manager, fired up vncviewer, and the task bar behaves

Is there a way to set an icon name for vncviewer?
