Sorry, but this is not reproduceable in my environs.
Diacritical characters generally do not appear on the first
keyclick but double on a second keyclick. This is normal because
diacritical characters wait for the (next) character they should
appear above, below or whatever. Hence, if there's no character
such as an "e" which can carry a circumflex the two characters 
will be put out in sequence thus the first keyclick on circumflex
displays nothing an the second will display evoke "^^". 
Upon this post I've tested this in windows to windows and windows
to linux and have not observed the "BUG" phenomenon, rather
regular behaviour as described above. One reason for this to
occur one could reason is incompatible keyboard mapping on
the Linux and Windows side

Hi all,

Meanwhile I've tried it on several machines and the problem seems to
appear everywhere. So imho this definetly is a bug in VNC. TightVNC
has the same problem.

You should be able to reproduce the problem easily:
- In Win2000 Control Panel/Keyboard/InputLocales select the keyboard
layout German or German(IBM)

- Under Linux (only tried 2.4.x kernels, several distributions) start
a vncserver

- Under Windows start a vnc viewer and connect to the linux box.

- In VNC press the key left to the 1 key, right above the tab key on
your keyboard. On the german keyboard, this is where the cirumflex
letter is. 

Instead of one circumflex character, two of these ^^ appear.
In any other windows-application this does not appear so in my eyes,
this has to be a bug in VNC.


So far..
