When doing a VNC installation, it appears there is an error while setting the VNC session password.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:

Does it work if you pass vncpassword=asdasd on the kernel command line?
This is because new vnc doesn't support changing these settings during runtime. I fixed this for rhel6 already, but forgot to push to master too, I'm sorry, my fault.
