vnc4server uses wrong default fontpath

vnc4 (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: vnc4server

vnc4server fails because it can't find any fonts; the logfile says that it's looking for /usr/share/X11/fonts/{misc, 75dpi, 100dpi etc}. The correct path is /usr/share/fonts/X11/{misc, 75dpi, 100dpi, etc}.

Using the command line parameter
-fp /usr/share/fonts/X11/misc

makes it work, but it would be nice if the default were correct.

This affects released Edgy (6.10); not sure about Dapper, but don't know how to assign the bug to Edgy
