for some reason after an upgrade to Xpra on RHEL 6 went a bit flakey,
sometimes displaying white/black windows. From digging around in the
log files there seems to be an unmet dependency in the
python2-pillow-4.3.0-1.el6_10.x86_64.rpm package that gets installed:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/xpra/server/source.py",
line 1687, in do_send_cursor
    from PIL import Image
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/PIL/Image.py", line 56, in <module>
    from . import _imaging as core
ImportError: /usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/PIL/_imaging.so:
undefined symbol: PyCapsule_New

PyCapsules are a Python 2.7 thing, while the Python on RHEL 6 is still
2.6.6 - am I missing something, or is Xpra on EL6 supposed to run with
a different Python version?
