Hi Pierre,

Thanks much for your reply.

I have 1.7 working nicely now.

After learning more, I agree, there's no need for a graphical greeter screen. That was too many years of Windows experience talking ;-)

I'm posting here recipe that worked for me, in case it is helpful to others. I'm sure that for someone more experienced, not all of this will be necessary:

Debian Stretch
Disable Wayland and use x.org
Install LightDM in place of GDM to handle logins
Install Mate desktop in place of Gnome
Edit ~/.vnc/Xstartup to run mate-session, the full contents being:
 
  #!/bin/sh
  unset SESSION_MANAGER
  unset DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS
  vncconfig -nowin &
  exec dbus-launch mate-session
