Regain control of an X Server

view story

http://serverfault.com – I have a Gnome session running on my server. I started it with tightvncserver. Now it wont let me in anymore because of "Too many authentication failures - client rejected". This seems to be a known issue: http://www.mail-archive.com/[email protected]/msg25235.html I dont want to kill the vncserver, as it probably will kill the current Gnome session. I have some rendering software running and don't want to lose the calculations. Any ideas how to get hold of the Gnome session again? (HowTos)
