Approximately 2 weeks ago, I performed a fresh installation of FreeBSD 6.2, 
updated to STABLE world and kernel, deleted all packages and installed 
up-to-date versions of packages.  The upgrade to xorg 7.2 was uneventful.  

After using tightvnc, the user that started vncserver is unable to access an X 
window locally, even after killing vncserver and rebooting.  All I get is a 
grey screen with a black crosshair until xinit gives up with the messages 
below.  The first section is repeated several times before the program gives up.

#####messages begin#####
AUDIT: Tue Jul 17 08:34:12 2007: 853 X: client 1 rejected from local host (uid

giving up.
xinit:  unable to connect to X Server

waiting for X server to shut down ..FreeFontPath: FPE 
"/usr/local/lib/X11/fonts/misc" refcount is 2, should be 1, fixing.

xinit:  Server error.
#####end of messages#####

After this happened, I had to remove and recreate the user to get X working 
again.  Root, who never executed vncserver, was able to use X before and after 
tightvnc was used.

To recreate this scenario, I created a new user, "vncguest", with a .xinitrc 
file containing only one line:  "startkde".  Vncserver was started using the 
default options (twm, etc).  After remote access was opened and closed, 
vncguest has been unable to use X.  My normal user can still use X (kde).

Any advice?
