Thanks! The VNC server works fine for me, even in text mode. Perhaps the 
text mode VM has blanked the screen? ;-)

The attached patch adds support for absolute mouse pointer updates and 
some code to free the VNC framebuffer object.

It appears that, while properly shutting down the virtual machine 
(either via savestate or ACPI), the call to session->Close() in 
VBoxHeadless.cpp causes a segmentation fault. This does not seem to 
affect the operation though. This problem exists even with the VNC 
extension disabled, so I suppose it is not related to the VNC code.
