Any suggestings on how to get keyboard and mouse working through remote desktop sharing?

This was working before I updated ATI video driver for Linux x64. Now when I remote access using TightVNC or RealVNC. I can enter password and login to Ubuntu but once on the desktop the mouse will move around. But if I click or use keyboard there is nothing on the screen.

However, if it close the VNC viewer and reopen the last action or click I did shows up on the screen. However, nothing else responds. But again it if close and reopen VNC viewer, the last click or keyboard key shows on the screen.

Is this just bug in the video driver?
