Bug Description

Libvncclient .9 which krdc is linked against by default on vivid contains a known bug which can lead to a crash connecting to a vnc client. See https://github.com/LibVNC/libvncserver/issues/45, https://github.com/LibVNC/libvncserver/issues/51. KRDC reliably triggers this when connecting to OS X clients. The bug is fixed by https://github.com/LibVNC/libvncserver/commit/57c524dfe2c3f0808a6e24cb97cb7f4a0b55c13d. Please include this fix in libvncclient. Updating libvnclient to 1.0 will resolve this issue for any program linked against it.

wily contains the libvnc patch needed to resolve this. Its versioned 0.9.10+dfsg-3 in the repo but installs as libvncclient.so.1.0.0. So it isn't affected by this bug.
