Description of problem:
When loading my vnc display (1:root) from Windows XP (VNC viewer beta
4), the default Bluecurve icons no longer display.  Instead, I am
presented with ugly gray icons (paper with a fold) representing almost
everything.  Additionally, when it is specified in
/etc/sysconfig/vncservers to start 1:root on startup, my :0 display
also takes on these attributes.  I found that stopping xvnc will cause
the icons to revert back to Bluecurve on the :0 display (all except
for the fedora "start here" icon, which is replaced by Gnome's default

This problem occured on the default install of FC2, and also under
vnc-3.3.7 on FC2.  FC1 never had any problems with either version of

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use default values for vnc configuration on FC2 (except for
uncommenting the two lines in xstartup for normal desktop) 
2. In Gnome, start vncserver either through the system-config-services
tool or "vncserver :1" in the terminal.
3. Use vncviewer to connect to the remote display :1.

Actual Results:  The VNC display shows gray icons for almost
everything, making it rather difficult to work in the environment.

Expected Results:  Fedora's default Bluecurve icons should display in
the VNC viewer window.

This is a GNOME problem.  It doesn't like you having two sessions for
the same user.  This worked once but seems to have broken again.

I see.  Thanks for clarifying.  This is not such a big problem then.  
Personally, I'm fine with never logging in locally to the machine 
anyway.  It never occurred to me to try this.  Thanks for your hard 
work in making Fedora so great.

Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
