1.210.1. RHBA-2009:1590: bug fix update


This update has already been released (prior to the GA of this release) as FASTRACK errata RHBA-2009:1590
An updated vino package that fixes a bug is now available.
Vino is a Virtual Network Computing (VNC) server for GNOME. It allows remote users to connect to a running GNOME session using VNC.
* Vino incorrectly assumed the X shared memory extension would always provide support for shared memory pixmaps. This lead to crashes with a BadImplementation error message. This update adds a check, ensuring shared memory pixmap support is available before requesting it. (BZ#493097)
All Vino users are advised to upgrade to these updated vino packages, which resolve this issue.
