Sorry for the delay in responding, here.  It sounds like the most likely
cause is some difference between how guacd is establishing the VNC
connection and the other VNC clients.  Not sure if it's a quality,
encoding, etc., sort of thing, but that's my best guess.  Any chance you
can try different settings for the non-Guacamole VNC client and see if
you're able to reproduce it at all with that - things like color depth,
encoding, quality, etc.?  Also might want to play with the settings in
Guacamole that you can adjust and see if any adjustments to that resolve
the issue.
