Version 1.2.2?  I assume you are using TightVNC?

Either way, the answer is the same, use the F8 pop-up window and you should
be set:

The newest RealVNC version also lets you change what key causes the pop-up
window to appear.  I have notice, though, some window managers like to grab
the keystrokes or something so F8 might only work in full screen mode (I've
seen it on RH 7.3 and Gnome).
