gridengine version 6.2u5-1ubuntu1
I start a desktop with the vncserver command.
My ~/.vnc/xstartup ends with 'gnome-session'.
I connect to it using chicken-of-the-VNC on my MacOSX Lion system.
I run 'qmon'. Much of qmon works, but several critical tasks show hopelessly garbled grid layouts. I have filed a bug report, but I suspect that there is something I am missing that would render (ahem) them legible.
