Description Karl Mikaelsson cendio 2015-12-03 10:57:46 CET
When starting, the HTML5 client reads the desktop name (as set by vncconfig -set desktop="name") and places it into the document title and the top bar.

When using the native client, any changes to the desktop name will update the window title.

When using the HTML5 client, any changes to the desktop name will be ignored.

When bug 4751 was implemented, the name was only considered on client initialization. The HTML5 client doesn't have support for the DesktopName pseudo-encoding yet.

In the initialization phase the server sends a "name associated with the desktop" which is the only thing used at the moment.
