That's interesting; which platform are you on?  Which VM version are 
you using?

The Squeak VNC server is unfinished.  That's a great project for 
someone to work on if someone has spare cycles... anyone? ;)  Although 
there's also Nebraska, which you might want to play with.

Usually I just close all the windows in morphic and that keeps the CPU 
low enough.  Most administration of deployed images I do with web UIs 
(for example, remotely loading MC packages to update code).  Seaside 
also has a "screenshot" web app that will pass mouse clicks through, 
that's often useful in a pinch (like for looking at debuggers that pop 
up).  It's only rarely that I've pulled a deployed image off a server 
to look at it with a full UI.
