I have installed the latest update that Apple posted a few days ago on multipl computers.  It seems that after the update, screen sharing still works, but instead of bringing up the shared screen in about 5 seconds as it used to, it now takes almost 30 seconds.  This has happened for me on two seperate networks so I believe it is not network related.  Something in the Lion update seems to be culpret.  My 10.6 server machines still can be shared fine.

    I'm having the same problem, but it does not appear to be related to any recent software updates.  It just takes long to show the first screen, and the response time to mouse and keyboard events is extremely slow.  Let me know if you find anything.

    Updated to Mountain Lion.  While there are significant new issues with screen sharing, the prior issue has been solved.  The delay is gone, when it connects (does not allways connect any more)

    I have the same problem with screen sharing when my mac mini is "headless". The shared screen does not render quickly or properly.

    I just upgraded all my MACs to Mavericks and have now found this issue.  It isn't unusable but is real close.  I use screenshare every day and all day so this is a real pain.


    Is anyone else seeing this?  Is it worth my while to try VNC?  Is it reasonable to think it may perform better?
