I tested the 6.5 client on a Mint 18.3 guest using XFCE and Java 9, but was unable to reproduce the behavior you describe:

Can you run the following command to get the log contents for your client and post them here (the x's denote your server's public thumbprint):

tail -250 /var/log/screenconnect-xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx



Ben - checking on progress - I updated with more information

Ben - sorry I was out of town and my trail appears to have expired.

Ben - Please see attached screenshots - the log does contain a few java exceptions.   When I login to the system with ConnectWise I get logged in, However notice the dual mouse cursors on the screen capture.  At this point I have no control to the remote system just the desktop is present.  Note - there are multiple GPUs in this system and it is headless.

Ben - any updates - ?
