Mac OSX 10.8.5 bug- cannot screen share

I discovered that Remoter would not connect to my MBP via any VNC client after updating to 10.8.5. It would just hang from around 20 seconds and then sy it could not connect. There might be a similar bug in 10.7x and 10.9.x that was released around the same time.

Details are here: ... 0&tstart=0

The solution is to disable Screen Sharing in System Preferences, restart, and then re-enable Screen Sharing. Some users report that after another restart that they cannot VNC into the Mac from any client again, requiring another disable and restart. However I found that after trying this solution and getting it to work (able to VNC again with Remoter) I was able to restart 10.8.5 and VNC in again with no problems.
