Hmm, thanks for shedding some light Roger, I am starting to make sense
of windows behaviour now, it does have some logic to it in the end ;o)
So I guess what I would be asking for, in the future, is that Gnome
Terminal Server Client applet, handles this " Remote Assistance"
protocol of Windows. I might file a wishlist bug about it, in case it's
not already in their pipeline...
