Look at the options on Xvnc -query, -broadcast and -indirect . You'll need 
to be running xdm on your machine, but vnc will then talk to that. This is 
exactly how I use it. Of course, for full functionality, the vnc password 
should then change to the one for the logged-in user, so you'd have to 
write something to handle that, somehow.
