Package: vinagre
Version: 3.4.2-1
Severity: important
Tags: upstream patch
Control: forwarded -1 https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=690449

Dear Maintainers,

Tunneling VNC connections through SSH does not work. After clicking the
"Connect" button, Vinagre waits a dozen of seconds, then fails with "Connection
to host $HOST was closed".

I identified the cause of the problem as being a blocking read (which ought to
be non-blocking). I attach a patch that fixes the problem for me, and that I
have forwarded upstream.
