This sounds like a possibility. Are you trying to run xrdb remotely? Try
locally, and perhaps another app like xterm, locally. Try moving
~/.Xauthority for your user, restarting X and vnc and see if that makes a
difference (unless you know that you need this file for another purpose,
and make sure you don't weaken the permissions)
