OpenSolaris 2009.06 Bug with vncviewer, and a workaround
By drapeau on Dec 06, 2009
Turns out I'm not the only one who ran into this problem, which doesn't seem to be fixed but at least it has a workaround. The workaround is to turn off visual effects for desktop actions. To do that, go to the System menu, choose "Preferences -> Appearance" and you will see a panel that looks like the image below. Be sure to check "None:" for the visual effects, and vncviewer from other computers (including Macs, which is where I first saw the problem) should go away.
Here's a link to the discussion I found about this problem.
And here's what the preferences panel looks like in OpenSolaris 2009.06 and later builds:
