user is appdev
it seems the error is the result of running xauth

Xstartup file -->
------------------
#!/bin/sh

xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
xsetroot -solid grey
xterm -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
xterm -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
xterm -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
twm &
------------------

if I try to run twm from console as user appdev I receive the same error message:

appdev "at" aix3:/home/appdev/.vnc>twm
exec(): 0509-036 Cannot load program twm because of the following errors:
        0509-130 Symbol resolution failed for twm because:
