  Desktop sharing display frozen

Status in xorg package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I can connect to a 14.10 desktop, but the update of the display is
  frozen in the VNC client. I see the desktop, with launcher and panel,
  but the time is stuck. Clicking on an app in the launcher does start
  the app, but the app does not appear on the VNC client screen. This
  happens when logging in using either Remmina on Ubuntu 14.04 on
  UltraVNC from a Windows 8.1 PC. Someone reported in the forums that
  this also happens when using x11vnc.
