Xpra: Ticket #333: Stop command fails to shutdown server

When I attempt to run the stop command to shutdown the server I get the following exception in the log:

Exception: cannot find compatible encoding between client ([]) and server (['x264', 'vpx', 'rgb24', 'rgb32', 'png', 'jpeg'])

This is revision 3385 on Ubuntu Linux (12.04.2) for both the client and server. This was not a problem in revision 3055.

Note that after running the stop command and getting that exception in the log the server continues running and does not stop.

trunk is in a state a flux, sorry about that.

I've trimmed down the list of features clients send when they don't need UI (no need for encodings support when you're not going to see anything)... but forgot to ensure the server doesn't barf. This is also to ensure we compute the right set of encodings (will vary more depending on UI client mode now)

Thanks for the report, will take care of it shortly.

fixed in r3386 (and tidied up a bit too)

Feel free to re-open if you still encounter problems.
