Any help with this? Should I report this as a bug?

If you run the ps command again at this point, is it still running (btw, pgrep
is helpful for this type of command)? Have you check the vncserver logs (I
can't recall off the top of my head where they are... maybe ~/.vnc)? I assume
you have network interfaces up and running.

Otherwise... you got me stumped. That's a good one.

Cheers,

Yes, I have included the VNC server logs in my original post. If you
see in the logs, it is unable to find some font directories and thus
ignoring those paths. Could it be a reason for the problem?

Seeing this, are the font directories installed properly ?
If yes, I could remember that there was an issue with starting vnc on
fedora which could be fixed by finding the 'fixed' font directory and
passing the name of that directory as an arguement to the tightvnc server

something like

[tight]vncserver -fp <path> :1
