The Avant Window Navigator is one of the best features of the recent versions of Ubuntu I believe. Unfortunately it is conflicting with the VNC client I want to use - or remote desktop. Because the option of visual effects has to be set to "normal" or "extra" for AWN to work. When that setting is enabled, however, when I VNC in I can see and move the cursor but I can't click on anything or make any changes unless I disable the fancy visual effects. Has anyone encountered this? Is there a workaround? Do I just need to update my video driver?

Thanks

(I'm on Ubuntu 9.04 and have run all available updates on a Dell XPS M1730)
