I am attempting to use VNC over SSH with a Leopard Server

I can VNC over SSH with a Tiger Server. If I execute that same
command with a Leopard Server, I can SSH, but not VNC over SSH.
Chicken of the VNC gives me the SWOD, and if I wait long enough it
times out. I can't comprehend what is going on here, especially
since I can VNC in without using SSH, and can SSH in without
issues. Has anyone been able to VNC over SSH with Leopard Server?
If anyone can point me in the right direction for where to look for
the problem, I would appreciate it.
normally you should use a different local port, for instance:
ssh email@hidden -L 5901:127.0.0.1:5900
and pass the relative screen number (1 in this case) to Chicken of the
VNC when opening the connection (I now use Screen Sharing though, with
target 127.0.0.1:5901). This is required always if the local machine
has also a VNC server running, as the ssh otherwise cannot open a
listener on an already used port.
