Sure... if you'll note the actual error, wdm is trying to find the font
you've configured to display in the chooser, and failing.

Specify your fontpath *explicitly* in your Xvnc invocation, and you'll have
no further problems.  I merely pointed mine to the font server running on
the local LAN.  Or switch to a font that IS in the default fontpath Xvnc

Been there, done that, got the t-shirt several weeks ago.
