"Service xinetd status" returns "xinetd (pid 3181) is running..." so I 
assume it is running.  The /etc/xinetd.d/vncts file reference earlier 
appears to be correct.  I've been using VNC on this machine for a couple 
of months and it just stopped on Saturday.  We all know thing rarely 
"just stop" so the truth probably is that I messed something up while 
doing something else.  I just haven't been able to figure out what.
