One thing that has bitten me when configuring the VNC server as
describe there, is that "service vncserver restart" invokes each
user's shell to start the server, in such a way that the shell
believes it is a login shell.  Depending on the shell and the user's
configuration, this may cause interactive commands to be executed
which will hang or otherwise interfere with the restart.
