I got similar behavior on my SGI.  My workaround is to edit vncserver as
follows:


#if (-e "/tmp/.X11-unix/X$displayNumber") {
#    $ENV{DISPLAY}= ":$displayNumber";
#} else {
    $ENV{DISPLAY}= "$host:$displayNumber";
#}

By commenting out the if-else locution and leaving the line:

$ENV{DISPLAY}= "$host:$displayNumber";

uncommented, Xvnc worked.
