Vinagre not working with reverse VNC connections


In the "client", running:
Code:
$ vinagre
... and in the "server", running:
Code:
$ x11vnc -connect 192.168.1.100
... leads to:
Code:
** (vinagre:2117): CRITICAL **: incoming: assertion `listener->priv->window != NULL' failed
* the number "2117" varies: it's the PID - and in the "server":
Code:
$ x11vnc -connect 192.168.1.100
(...)
25/02/2012 11:14:18 connect_once: invalid password or early disconnect.  0
(...)

Using, in the client:
Code:
$ vncviewer -listen
... everything works as expected


It's a known issue? How can I solve it?

* i'm using Linux Mint 12, with gnome-shell (but the same happens in Fedora 16), and:
Code:
$ apt-cache show vinagre
(...)
Version: 3.2.1-0ubuntu1
(...)
$ apt-cache show x11vnc
(...)
Version: 0.9.12-1build1
(...)
$ apt-cache show xtightvncviewer (provides 'vncviewer')
(...)
Version: 1.3.9-6.2
(...)
* as posted on http://forum.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=47&t=95601

Seems a bug in the package, not related to any distro...
