Thanks!   I was able  clone your tree without any trouble.
I've got a 1.7-ish version that mostly works -- until I move the pointer.
(Looks like the "events" argument to GetPointerEvents has changed).

Another problem is that window borders are not visible until the Xvnc
screen is refreshed, rfbPaintWindowBorder is not being called.
That used to be done in   mi/miwindow.c  miHandleValidateExposures(..)
like this:

but that code has been removed[1].   Does anyone know what needs to be
done to get window borders to appear?

[1] I added the lines back and borders are again visible, what will that
     break?  Composite maybe?
