[opensuse] SUSE 10.2 + (X)vnc

need a help with configuring VNC server on openSuse 10.2.

I'm using vnc server as a Xorg module called vnc (or Xvnc).
My requirements are very simple, I want to connect to display :0 on the PC and use an existing X session (using port 5900).

On previous version of Suse it worked this way. I just enabled Remote administration in Yast and then Enabled Vnc in the SaX utility.

In Suse 10.2 something changed. Maybe it's becouse of the new Xorg (now 7.2).
When I use identical steps to enable VNC, my Xorg starts VNC only on port 5901 and every connection starts a new X session.

I found Xvnc man page but it didn't help me anyway.
I also made a comparison of the new and old xorg.conf files. But there were only some minor differences.

How can I change behavior of the vnc module?

Thanks for any suggestions.


Some relevant lines from my xorg.conf :
