We are running Linux (Centos 5.5) in a 32 bit architecture. We have had great success with version 1.3.1 in that the cursor properly moves between screens and the keyboard/clipboard properly transverses between screens. Unfortunately when we tried to move to later versions (i.e. 1.3.4, 1.3.6 and even 1.4.2) they all had the same symptoms in that the server and client initially connect and the mouse moves properly between screens but as soon as the keyboard is touched while in a focused window on the client side, the system locks up (i.e. the server no longer honors requests and the client keeps trying to reconnect). What gives? Are we locked into 1.3.1 forever?
For now, the workaround on RHEL5 seems to be either to:
A) drop by back 1.3.1 server
B) use the --no-xinitthreads on Syngerys 1.3.6 or newer.
I see lots of comments on this for various bugs. Too bad we can't have Synergys note this on startup. Or have it mentioned in the docs more clearly.

Could be a bug. Possibly related:
As l8gravely points out, there is a work around for this. I forgot about writing this feature, sorry about that!
