I have a system running X windows with x11vnc launched as x11vnc -shared -forever -nap -bg -auth /home/xyz/.serverauth.1959. I sometimes connect to this system by means of vncviewer. Two things seem to happen in this system when I do this:
1. The key repeat setting ends up becoming disabled.
2. DPMS ends up becoming disabled.
Both the key repeat and DPMS features are enabled before the vncviewer connection is launched.
It is easy enough to enable those two features again, but I wonder whether somebody in this forum might know why they get disabled in the first place? I mean, this very clearly happens after the vncviewer session has been established (I am not sure whether it happens at this point, or when the session terminates) and never under any other circumstances, as far as I can tell.
