This sounds like a pair of bugs in the assistant.

"Connect to" should display a page with instructions in it. Could you run the assistant up to this point, then file a bug report with your ~/.remote_help/send_with_bug_report.txt file, so I can (try to) fix it?

When you allow someone else to access the desktop, does it look like this:

If so, I think you're seeing a cousin of bug #260872 - could you file a bug report with a screenshot of the problem? (include both files in the same report if you prefer).

I'll do it later, the py file is now on my usb stick which isn't here,
and we've got now 22:00 here in central Europe.

So don't expect a reply before monday.
BUt I can say you the 2nd error looks exaktly like your screenshot.

Monday was a while ago now, so I'll assume the problem no longer applies :)

Can you help with this problem?
