AIX problems on v4.2.1

    Thanks to Charles Hines's patch for 4.2.1 I have a very stable
version of Vnc on one of my AIX boxes.

    Now here is the strange part. On some of my AIX 4.2.1 boxes I get
this error in the log file:
15/10/98 11:47:15 Xvnc version 3.3.XvncRelease

1356-265 xsetroot:  Unable to open display:  aixport:1.
Error: Can't open display: aixport:1
1356-200 xhost unable to open display "aixport:1"

    Note the lines starting with xrdb do not appear in the log file
until after I attempt to connect with vncviewer.

    The ony difference I have been able to see between the machine
that is working and the above host is that it has an X11 patch for
xdm on it:

    Other than that they are both at the same os level (v4.2.1.0)

    I have tried building Vnc on both machines and running it. No
progress. I get the same error messages. And the compilation messages
look the same as well.

    Also interesting is that I get the same error message if I run
the AIX 4.2.1 binary on our AIX 4.3 box.

    Only thing is I have only tried IBM's C compiler... We do have
gcc installed on one of them.

    Any other ideas ??
