I think somehow the xterminator program is killing x11vnc.  When I reboot the client and
log in the first time, I can mOnitor or Control the client.  Once I logout and log back
in things stop working.  If I reboot the client and login things work, logout and in,
dead again.  Very repeatable.

Robert, how is x11vnc ran, which user owns it?  I asked Matt and he said the xterminator
program should only kill processes owned by the logging in user.

What do I check on the client to be sure x11vnc is still running properly?

I'll keep fiddling,
