Did you have Gnome running on the VNC server that was started from Xinetd,
and Gnome was also supposed to start on the VNC server you started manually?
I've heard Gnome gets confused if the same user tries to run it on several
desktops at the same time. Other people on this list know more about this.
Can you access the machine in text mode (with telnet or SSH or something),
and run "vncserver :22", just to see if it works then?
