  err yes ... i ran it without the -n (doh me) ... it is listening ..
and that is confirmed in addition by:

Good News:
  a) /var/log/gdm/:0.log

 vncext:      VNC extension running!
 vncext:      Listening for VNC connections on port 5900
 vncext:      created VNC server for screen 0

  b) vncviewer does show something .. but ...

Bad News:
  THe client end is not legible - it is all smeared and full of lines
... totally unusable.

 If it matters ... the remote end has this graphics chipset:

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82Q35 Express
Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02)

  Happy for any suggestions ?
