repeat _quickly_ the following:

press and hold shift;
press and hold the semicolon key;
release shift;
release semicolon.

you should obtain an infinite sequence of semicolons;
press any key to stop it.

i call /usr/bin/Xvnc with the following options:

-query localhost -depth 24 -interface 192.168.0.1
-geometry 1024x768

i'm willing to help to solve this problem, so let me
know any other piece of information you need, or any
kind of testing i can do!

thanks for your good work, anyway!

    where x-key can be any key wich is modified by pressing "shift"

    the switch -kb solve the problem!!!

    i now call /usr/bin/Xvnc with the following options:

    -query localhost -depth 24 -interface 192.168.0.1 -geometry
    1024x768 -kb

    and everything works fine.

    let me know any other testing you need.

    thanks.
