I didn't even have gtk-vnc loaded, and it seems to have no effect, 
presumable because the command line run uses SDL.
  Ex:  qemu-kvm -m 1200 -std-vga -hda fc11beta.img
or similar. I played with vnc a few months ago, and it made no 
difference. I would really prefer to avoid having the extra layer if I 
can avoid it.
