Interesting... do you see the same error message?:

"Fatal server error:

Mmmm, you can make a test. Just comment (#) those lines about font paths 
in your "xorg.conf" file *but* keep nvidia settings intact. Then, try to 
launch "vnc4server".

I'm not sure. It could be that "vnc4server" just "erroneously" quits when 
finds something it doesn't like in the the "xorg.conf" file.
