Its worked super well for me (though less well with GNOME3's effects 
etc)... Can you point me to what you mean by the usual info into 
xorg.conf?  to be clear, I don't want to run *my* session over VNC. I 
want to be able to connect to a remote users *current* session to see 
and control their computer (while they see what I'm doing)... Does your 
message still apply?
