Avoid VNC as root. Bad idea.

VNC has some init scripts which might prove more useful. On FC5:
# chkconfig vncserver on
...then edit /etc/sysconfig/vncservers
For example, mine contains the following:
VNCSERVERARGS="-geometry 1024x768 -nohttpd"
VNCSERVERARGS="-geometry 800x600 -nohttpd"
Might be worth emptying your ~/.vnc folders and recreating them if
you're having stability problems. Also check you're running the
x86_64 version of VNC - I had stability issues running the i386 builds
Obligatory 1p GBP.
