I can confirm the issue. Whenever I try to enable desktop sharing I get the following error message:
-----------
Failed to start the krfb server. Desktop sharing will not work. Try setting another port in the settings and restart krfb.
-----------
Whatever port I choose, krfb fails to start desktop sharing.
