Vinagre: VNC client for GNOME
vinagre (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

"I am on a LAN with large numbers of VNC servers. Vinagre takes 5 minutes to try to discover every server on every launch. This is really annoying. Is it possible to turn this feature off. I cannot find a menu item nor a command line option to shut it off." - Leon Zhou

Perhaps an option to disable the feature would be similar to: -h, --disable-host
