I am trying to run mozilla inside vnc without much success.  When I specify a
depth of 24 Xvnc core dumps when mozilla starts up.  A depth of 8 works fine
(but is ugly).  Here is the stack back trace of Xvnc:

#0  0xff1c5d2c in realfree () from /usr/lib/
#1  0xff1c651c in cleanfree () from /usr/lib/
#2  0xff1c56a4 in _malloc_unlocked () from /usr/lib/
#3  0xff1c559c in malloc () from /usr/lib/

#8  0x32f4c in Dispatch () at dispatch.c:300
#9  0x12514 in main (argc=20, argv=0xffbeeb34) at main.c:400

And here is the log file:

My server command is:

vncserver :3 -geometry 1280x1024 -depth 24

and my viewer command is:

vncviewer ongws049:3

I tried -cc 3 with -depth 24, but the server would not even start.

Thanks for any help you can provide!
