    fix vnc screen corruption bugs and viewer exits
    I have been having problems with display corruption using raw
    I have also been having issues with the vncviewer client exiting with
    "rect too big".
    These problems appear when there are rapid changes to the framebuffer
    contents. [I've been using "find /" in my tests to generate a lot of text
    The root cause of both problems appears to be the changing of
    the underlying framebuffer data during the creation of the update.
    [Hextile makes multiple passes over the data and gets badly
    confused if the data changes..]
    The attached patch pulls the pixel data from the "stable" old_data
    buffer rather than directly from the (changing) display surface.
