Great but until it's proven to work well I think PNG encoding as default would 
be better.

With patch applied I tested again and found that patch is actually may be 
helping a bit at the cost of visual distortion of ~2...4 pixels at right hand 
side of some windows. I tried to connect to two different xpra instances and 
couldn't crash both of them by switching to 'VPX' encoding. 

However third session where I have iceweasel, kmail and reportbug-ng running 
is crashing reliably.
