This backtrace is just as baffling as it was the first time I looked at it, I cannot see why it's crashing here. We're checking that the list isn't empty, so it's not that. There's a mutex lock around all accesses to the list, so it's not a race. There's the slim chance that the pointer is bad but we're not dereferencing it at the line indicated in the BT so that doesn't seem to be the cause either. Add to that we've had no other reports of a segfault here.

I'd say that either the backtrace is just bad for some reason or this a weird VNC interaction that's beyond my understanding and my ability to fix.
