immediate disconnect using realVNC 3.3.7

Yes, the standard Win"K "grey" isn't an exact grey - it has slightly more
red than green and blue.  When in 64 colour mode this gets exaggerated
because the red value is one side of the threshold and the green and blue
the other side.  If you can't live with it, the best thing to do is to pass
lowcolourlevel=2 as an argument to the viewer.  This will use 256 colours
for slow connections rather than 64 colours.

Cheers

Tristan
