not working for me, on a clean x86_64 box, i did a yum install nx 
freenx, and its setup fine ( pulls in openssl.i686 and a few more deps - 
nothing X related ). I can use a client ( again from a x86_64 machine ) 
and login, the auth goes through fine, the desktop comes up too. But I 
get no window  borders in the nx session, and using the mouse is a hit 
and miss situation, the pointer seems to be offset by about 80 px X 30 
px, making it effectively unusable.

Is there something that I might have missed here ? I am a NX Noobie, so 
if anyone has words of wisdom to shed, please do so.
