Ubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.04 Bug vnc4server press „m“ not usable! vnc4server

Problem: If you install vnc4server and open a ssh tunnel session to
you Lucid Lynx Server you can’t press little key „m“ cause it highlights
taskbar indicator applet!

1. edit /home/username/.vnc/xstartup
2. add lines:

# Uncomment the following two lines for normal desktop:
# exec /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc
[ -x /etc/vnc/xstartup ] && exec /etc/vnc/xstartup
[ -r $HOME/.Xresources ] && xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
xsetroot -solid grey
vncconfig -iconic &
x-terminal-emulator -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
x-window-manager &
#gnome-session & (disable gnome opens only Screen with a Xterm)

3.save xstartup
4.restart vncserver

#vncserver -kill :1 and then vncserver -geometry 800x600 -depth 16
this will open vnc with xterm here you can start firefox inside xterminal
#firefox &

Solution2: Try update the server cause the indicator-applet gets a new release

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade -y

Solution3: Install jwm windowmanager, and replace at .vnc/xstartup the line

x-window-manager & to jwm &
