Check that the vnc module is being loaded when X starts... should say so in the /var/log/Xorg.0.log

(II) LoadModule: "vnc"
(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions//libvnc.so
(II) Module vnc: vendor="RealVNC Ltd"
compiled for, module version = 1.0.0
Module class: X.Org Server Extension
ABI class: X.Org Server Extension, version 0.2
(II) Loading extension VNC

Also check that the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file contains the appropriate vncpassword file. Should be something like

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Dummy Screen"
Device "Dummy GFX Card"
Monitor "Dummy Monitor"
DefaultDepth 16
SubSection "Display"
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
Option "PasswordFile" "/root/.vnc/passwd"

Good luck,
