both are up-to-date (aptitude dist-upgrade).

The best I could achieve is the following sequence:

connecting to sesman ip 127.0.0.1 port 3350
sesman connect ok
sending lgin info to sesman
login succesful for display 10
started connecting
connecting to 127.0.0.1 5910
error - problem connecting

I've digged a bit further and can tell that Xvnc is well started using 
the following command line:

Xvnc :10 -geometry 800x600 -depth 24 -rfbauth 
/home/bernard/.vnc/sesman_passwd -bs -ac

but it seems that something goes wrong there and I've not be able to

Many can be the reason for that error message.
In such a case, I usually bring up xrdp-sesman process with --no-daemonize
option so that I can see the error messages in detail.

This error usually mean the xserver did not start.
Usually you can see the problem if you type

Xvnc :10

at a command prompt.
If it does start, try to connect to it with vncviewer.
