 At least in the case built from pkgsrc...
 Can you please try to rebuild it from pkgsrc as follow?:
  % env CFLAGS=-g INSTALL_UNSTRIPPED=yes make replace
 Then when it crashes can you please share the share the output of?:
  % gdb -core Xvnc.core `which Xvnc`
 Another possible interesting information to look are messages in
 `/var/log/messages' (some pkgsrc security machinisms produce
 information there in case of program that violate them).
 Thank you!
