Problem with VNC on AMD64

I have been using FreeBSD for several years now on intel32. Now I 
installed it on my new server which is a AMD64. Most things go well, but 
I can't get a Window Manager working under VNC anymore. Here you find 
the VNC log:

wmaker fatal error: it seems that there is already a window manager running

So VNC server will run, and I can connect to it from a VNC-client, but 
the window manager fails to start correctly.

I've tried a different window manager (TWM), but here a similar error 
message occurs:
twm:  another window manager is already running. on screen 0?
twm:  unable to find any unmanaged video screens.

Anybody suggestions how I can solve this?
