Did you consider this X display?

  (vncserver < /dev/null 2>&1 > /dev/null)

The use of PAM_TTY is primarily for the application to communicate to
modules where the user input/output is coming from/going to, in the case
of X, a remote display's underlying terminal (a la vncviewer) might
change at random many times during the life of a vncserver session.
