I thought the -noxdamage setting in the session script had already
resolved your problems with the x11vnc session to your FE/BE box.

You had stated:
"Brilliant - this has made it much, much better.  I just needed to know
where to add the  -noxdamage command.  If you do not want to be
messing with new X sessions, SSH etc you just want to connect to your
MythTV boxes without having your TV on etc this fix makes using VNC
usable (for me at least) when in OpenGL mode."

Did it not work as expected?
(just curious)
