XDMCP Problem

Hello Everyone,

This is my first post to the list, I hope someone has some insight to 
this problem.  Ive been having a problem using XDMCP between my two 
Kubuntu systems.  I have configured them and I am able to remote in but 
on disconnection they revert to alternate screens forcing me to use Ctrl 
Alt F7 to get back into X.  After doing this a few times it will bring 
me to a black screen that with a cursor but I am able to do nothing 
further.  I am unable to Ctrl Alt Backspace or even operate the caps 
lock key.  When the remote client (running Kubuntu) disconnects, it also 
goes to a black prompt at an alternate screen.  I am trying to use my 
laptop to remote into my desktop for class but it seems to need some 
tweaking before its ready for this task reliably.  If anyone has run 
across this problem, help would be appreciated.
