KRDC display problems with 11.4 RC2

Has anyone tried using KRDC with RC2? I get random blocks of scrambled
display viewing the remote screen. Thought it might be the video as this
old Nvidia GF6100 has been a PITA all the way through but I get identical
results with the most recent Nvidia Beta drivers that I get going back
several versions, including the most recent stable version (260.19.36) which
is rock solid under 11.3. The scrambled blocks somewhat track the cursor
position which makes reading menus a tad bit difficult…

The same remote connection and display are fine with KRDC in 11.3. Where
would a bug report be appropriate?

I haven’t had a problem here (with rc2) using krdc - with the nvidia driver installed

That seems to be part of the default authentication scheme. The remote host has the option preset for requesting remote control of this machine turned on. It presents that wacky scrambled screen to the requester until the remote session is accepted at the host.

As soon as you accept the remote session, the remote display looks normal.

No, this has only fairly small patches of the screen scrambled and those
areas move - usually right over the !@#$ menu I’m trying to read. I did
some playing with both the local display video settings and the remote
server/connection and found that if I slowed down the link speed it asks for
on connection things get better. I tried all three options: low, medium,
and high. Being on a 1.5/1.0MB DSL line, I found the high speed - referred
to as fast internet or local network (definitely not mine!) actually worked
pretty well, the medium speed setting was horrible, and the low speed
setting (slow/modem) was actually the most usable - but slow is being kind.

From another perspective: same machine, same video driver (Nvidia 260.19),
same remote site, etc. works rock solid even with the supposedly higher
speed network requested.
