You'll have to provide more useful information than 'screwed up' and
'general choas' if we're to properly dianose this. A screenshot of what
is wrong if there's a graphics rendering problem would be a start.

Also, what GTK-VNC version do you have ?  Make sure it is at least
0.3.8, so that it is using Cairo for rendering, and not old buggy
OpenGL based GtkGLExt.
