Why does my VNCServer die for no apparent reason

Not a clue, but I have a Band-Aid.

 Set the corrective action each time it dies to be to restart the service.

If there is something going wrong that nukes the service and keeps it from
starting, you will see it fail to start and generate another error -
hopefully with a more useful piece of information.

Also, scan the logs - system and app - for a minute or so before the failure
and see if there is another incident recorded which looks suspicious.
