Bug Description

Description: Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
Release: 10.04

Enable Compiz animations and also enable Remote Desktop.
Try to visit your machine from any platform that can run VNCviewer.
The screen appears but does not ever update its contents. The mouse and keyboard work but the display does not.

Log out, then go to your Ubuntu machine and disable visual effects.
Try to visit your machine from any platform that can run VNCviewer. It works.

I cannot say whether this is a Compiz problem or a Remote Desktop problem.
