While it is exceedingly rare (xorg developers are some of the best...) are you talking about it working on x86/x86_64 lihux and cygwin/x86, and not working on powerpc Mac OS X? - i.e. as opposed to possibly   alpha/sparc/powerpc linux and x86 mac OS X?

The reason why I am asking is that intel is small-endian and powerpc is big-endian. It is very rare, but can't say if there could be endian-issues in the interaction. (given that most Xvfb users are on small-endian platforms?)

It might be useful to ask at the IRC channel #freedesktop_at_Freenode for debug tips - there are some seriously hardcore X11 guru's there... I am sure they like to know if you can bring Xvfb down :-).
