right, i just verified that by starting vncserver (with a display
number of :1) and browsing to http://<server IP>:5801, which popped up
a java applet vnc viewer, so that's another mystery solved.

p.s.  on the server side, you can disable this ability by starting
vncserver with the option "-nohttpd", for which "netstat" will show
you that nothing is listening on that port.  slowly but surely ...
