vncviewer: read failed

I've found that logging out will kill the connection. Does anyone know
how I can change NT4's Default user screen settings to match my
settings? Default user (the login) is 16-bit 800x600 and mine is 8-bit.
I've poked about in the registry but nothing seems to change the Default
user's display settings. 

I'm using VNC now to log in to our main NT server so I don't feel safe
logging out without restarting the VNC Viewer to check it really logged
out. :)

Yes.  That's a little buglet in the documentation.  It used to be the
case that switching desktops (e.g. via Ctrl-Alt-Del) would kick off
clients but now only screen resolution changes will.
