Ah thanks ! :-)
I added a password to my account, now I can connect to it  ! :o)

It works well except for one strange show stopper... 

1) First, I log into my XP account
2) In Ubuntu I open an RDP session
3) I can see the Windows desktop and control it. 
4) however as soon as the seesion is started, windows logs me out !!!
5) I log back again in windows
6) When I have done that, now it's the Ubuntu remote desktop session
that exists/closes all of a sudden !
