From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.4) Gecko/20010917

Description of problem:
The vncserver service don't restart after a crash because the lock in
/tmp/.X11-unix/X* is still there.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.make vncserver start at boot time (chkconfig ...)
2.add an entry in /etc/sysconfig/vncserver
3.restart the conputer
4.verify vncserver is working using vncviewer
5.crash (turnoff) your computer
7.vncserver is not working anymore because the lock is still there

Actual Results:  vncserver is not working anymore because the lock is still

Expected Results:  vncserver was working

Additional info:

EASY to fix, just add 
  # Delete X locks
  rm -f /tmp/.X*-lock
+  rm -f /tmp/.X11-unix/*
in /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit
maybe vncserver can be more agressiv against bad lock files.
probably occur in 7.2 too.
