Here's one thing that works....even though it's a pain in the *ss. 
Connect via OS X using the NX client.  Once open....suspend that
session....then log back into that session with the client and the
keyboard mappings and colors will be fine.  (logging in twice kinda'
sucks, but at least it will work).  To test....log in via OS X
client....try typing something....I used KTouch.  Suspend....log back up the same app and try again....this time it'll work fine. not terminate or "log out".
