Using -inetd but only one Xvnc Spawned

I am trying to set up Vnc so that inetd spawns Xvncs as necessary to 
users connecting instead of having multiple Xvncs already running.

I have got it going so far as it works for the first user connecting but 
as soon as another connects it grabs the first session instead of 
creating a new Xvnc.

I am using Suse 7.3 and gdm and this is my inetd.conf entry:

vnc-1152x900x24 stream  tcp     nowait  nobody  /usr/X11R6/bin/Xvnc 
-inetd -query testhost -once -geometry 1152x900 -depth 24

[I have tried -broadcast instead of -query testhost and removing the -once]

I have taken a look at the mailing list archives but searching for 
-inetd gave 600+ messages which is too much for my slow link.

Thanks for reading and any advice would be most welcome.
