I'm running FreeNX on the server, and the NoMachine client for Windows as well. 

However, I did just edit /etc/xserver/node.conf to uncomment
ENABLE_AUTORECONNECT and set it to 1. Once I get to work I can test if
that does the trick.

(On a side note, I'm also seeing a problem with the NM OS X client
where it fails to 'create an authentication cookie' in X11; until I
get that fixed I don't know how well it works.)
