unusable black box

I am running Fedora Core 3 and do not have that problem myself, even though
I use a script with a similar command to kill my VNC server. I can stop and
restart my VNC server as frequently as I like, and not have a problem. Maybe
a configuration error, but not a bug with VNC or Fedora as best I can tell.

I stop the vncserver like this:
vncserver -kill :1
and then when I restart vncserver I get the fun (not) black box. What makes
this odd though is it's not every time but enough to get highly annoying.
This has got to be a bug with VNC or FCx, or both, considering I had the
identical problem with FC3.
