I got this working late last night. A few notes in case anyone else
run's into the same problems that I did.
The first one is that my version of Xvfb didn't seem to support the
fbdir option. So I ran Xvfb without it.
This meant that rather than using xwdtopnm < /tmp/Xvfb_screen0 to
capture the screen image. I used the xwd command to grab the screen
image. So in my case
xwd -display :1 -root > image.xwd
The final change that I had was that I didn't have the cjpeg untility so
I substituted in pnmtojpg to get the final output.
Finally for users of Firefox 2, I found that having killed the firefox
process later restarts would show a dialog box asking if you wanted to
restore the old session. In order to disable this I set
browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash to FALSE in the about:config
settings in Firefox.
My changed YWMS.pm file can be grabbed from:
