xmodmap and caps/ctrl

I'm running Xvnc under Linux, and in my main startx script I have

	xmodmap -e "add control = Caps_Lock"
	xmodmap -e "remove lock = Caps_Lock"

So that capslock becomes another control.  I can't live without this.
But it doesn't seem to work in Xvnc.  I get an error message:

	KbdAddEvent: unknown KeySym 0xffe5 - allocating KeyCode 89

the first time I press the capslock key, which thereafter does nothing
at all.

Is this fixable?
