gutsy & vncserver 3.3.7-14ubuntu1

When I start the server, it looks like it's ok:

rhk@slabanderi:~$ vncserver -geometry 800x600 -depth 16 :4
New 'X' desktop is slabanderi:4
Starting applications specified in /etc/X11/Xsession
Log file is /home/rhk/.vnc/slabanderi:4.log
rhk@slabanderi:~$

but it writes this in the logfile

12/12/07 23:27:11 Desktop name 'X' (slabanderi:4)
12/12/07 23:27:11 Protocol version supported 3.3
12/12/07 23:27:11 Listening for VNC connections on TCP port 5904

Fatal server error:
could not open default font 'fixed'

and as soon as I try to connect to server, it prints this in the console (on the server side):
channel 2: open failed: connect failed: Connection refused

I also tried the -fp /usr/share/X11/fonts/misc/ and now the log file prints:
12/12/07 23:33:25 Listening for VNC connections on TCP port 5904
failed to set default font path ''
Fatal server error:
could not open default font 'fixed'

This seems to help (at least until reboot): sudo ln -s /usr/share/fonts/X11 /usr/share/X11/fonts

So this bug still seems to exist in Gutsy..
