Hi LeRoy,

I just installed vnc on 5.2 here tonight and am seeing this. It appears
that the call to require sys/ is failing with that error.

I have not gone any further with it, but forced CheckDisplayNumber to
return 1 and commented out the call to require sys/ for testing.

Now someone can give the correct answer :),
