Grasping at straws here....
Are you running vnc server as a systemd service that gets started
at boot time? I've never had a problem with that....but if you're
doing that how about disabling it for a test.
No, I started it from the command line. Recall that I had the same
problem before I started using VNC. In fact, VNC is just a workaround
so I can get practical work done using this machine.
I have mixed feelings about your frustration. I'm certainly frustrated
myself. But it feels slightly good that someone else is also baffled
by the situation. I only wish there were someone who wasn't baffled
and could tell me what is wrong. Thanks for all the help.
