I know that in this RedHat dist of VNC, the vncserver will run
~/.vnc/xstartup to get the session initialized. Just throw an "exec
<whatever>" in there like in your .xinitrc or .Xsession or .Xclients
or whatever. I had the same issue where my local login runs blackbox
but my VNC session would start up with Gnome.
