strang gtk-vnc behavior in -current

Anyone got gtk-vnc 0.5.{1,2} working fine on -current? It seems to build fine (on either native or SBo flavors) but when running it (either via gvncviewer or via virt-viewer) it seems to be having a problem displaying the graphical/console display, as it seems to render a few tiles, or none at all, erratically.

I've ruled out general VNC issues as both tightvnc and kdrc just work; could it be an issue between gtk-vnc and Xorg (I'm trying dig deeper by running with --gtk-vnc-debug and strace, but nothing exceptional is showing up...)

It doesn't work for me either. It works fine on Slackware 14 with Xorg 1.12.

I'd guess some issue between Xorg and gtk-vnc too.

Yeah, on the 14.0 release and Xorg 1.12 it just works. I was thinking it had to do with vala and/or pyobject (as I was getting warnings about them when building) but it seems not the case. I don't see any discussion on upstream about it either, so I think I'll report this to them as well.
