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)
