Running vncviewer as a background task

When I run the following from a Gnome terminal:

	vncviewer -xrm passwordDialog host.foo.com &

the text-based dialog goes into the background, and never brings up the
graphical dialog. If I then bring the task back into the foreground, it
hangs, and will not accept any keystrokes. I'm forced to kill the task
from the process list.

Can anyone shed some light onto how to make this behave as expected?
