VNC is working the way one would expect here, Casper. It tries to show the
desktop in the remote session. As soon as it opens, it has to render itself
within itself. So your actual console window then shows a desktop window
containing a viewer window. So the viewer window has to show a desktop
containing a viewer window containing a viewer window... and so on. It's a
classic hall of mirrors effect.
