Xpra: Ticket #1184: 0.17 Windows Shadow Server Broken

As the title suggest, I am unable to create Windows Shadow Servers. I get the following traceback:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Xpra>Xpra_cmd.exe shadow :0 --bind-tcp=
2016-04-21 10:36:06,043 created named pipe: \\.\pipe\Xpra\Main

The client still works, however.

I meant to post this on Tuesday, but apparently I didn't hit submit.

Got it, my boxes all have apple's bonjour installed for testing - so I never hit this. r12457 should convert this error into a warning.

Should this happen again, you can bypass this issue by turning off mdns with --mdns=no.

(No build posted of that revision, but the --mdns=no workaround is fine for #1099)

waiting on Smo to see if he can get a build, otherwise I can wait until I get one of yours.

Tue, 03 May 2016 20:31:20 GMT - J. Max Mena: status changed; resolution set

Got the newer r12491 build, and shadow servers start fine.
