vncviewer Doesn't Work with Mac OS X Screen Sharing

I just tried to connect to my Mac OS X (10.5.8) using VNC Viewer Free Edition 4.1.2 for X, which is distributed by RealVNC. Upon producing the following output after attempting to connect, vncviewer exits immediately:

VNC Viewer Free Edition 4.1.2 for X - built Jul 27 2010 10:24:13

See for information on VNC.

CConn: connected to host port 5900
CConnection: Server supports RFB protocol version 3.889
CConnection: Using RFB protocol version 3.8

TXImage: Using default colormap and visual, TrueColor, depth 24.
CConn: Using pixel format depth 6 (8bpp) rgb222
CConn: Using ZRLE encoding
main: End of stream

The solution, I found, is to install Vine Server, an open source VNC server on Mac OS X. vncviewer has no problem connecting to the Vine Server.
