Nothing wrong at your site, it is the difference between vnc for M$Windows
and vnc for unix machines:
Since M$WIndows machines cannot serve more than one user at a time (at least
in the 1990's) the only use for vnc was to copy the console.
For Unix machines with X11 for windows, the approach is different: Xvnc (the
core of vncserver) is a X11 server on it self to have a place for it's own
windows and it does not copy anything from the console.
For unix machines, there is no need to capture the windows at the console,
you can use your own. Have a look at the setup here:
http://www.sourcecodecorner.com/articles/vnc/linux.asp for a nice vnc setup
from which you can work just like at the console.
