VNC Viewer under Solaris does not pass ctrl + mouse keys to host???

When I run VNCviewer on my solaris box (SunOS award-u10 5.8
Generic_108528-07 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-5_10), I CANNOT access any
Xterm menus (ctrl+leftMouse or ctrl+middleiMouse or ctrl +

When I launch VNCViewer from a PC, I have FULL access to these menus.

When I access those menus directly on xterms launched on that Solaris
box (not through VNC server / viewer) I ALSO HAVE FULL access to these

I am using ~award/vnc_sun4_sosV_5.5/Vncviewer.  (The troubled viewer
and host are running on the same machine.) It has been working fine up
until ECS pushed Solaris 8 on top of me. Since then it has been bad.

And, I DO start my vnc server with:

vncserver -pn -depth 24 -alwaysshared -geometry 1152x900 ; autocutsel

Any insights would be greatly appreciated.
