I use my MacBook extensively every day from work through VNC. OSXVNC has been great (much better than ARD’s VNC) but I’ve run into one small annoyance:
I use MoneyDance (http://www.moneydance.com) to manage my bank accounts. It appears to display a specialized cursor when performing tasks that take a few seconds. This cursor seems to cause a problem for OSXVNC – the VNC session will just freeze and not take any user input until I instruct my VNC client (Ultra VNC on Windows) to “Request Screen Refresh”. Then, everything is back to normal until the next time MoneyDance tries to display the custom cursor.
Here is the error from the OSXVNC log:
2006-07-07 08:35:34.703 OSXvnc-server Error Sending Cursor
This error is logged each time MoneyDance tries to display it’s custom cursor. Is this an OSXVNC bug? Anyone know of a way to resolve it? It’s not a huge problem since I’m able to work around it, but it’d be nice if I didn’t have to!
