This occurs whenever the Windows NT host is in screen saver mode ("Logon
Screen Saver") or when the logon screen is present. Only the normal
desktop view succeeds in displaying in vncviewer.

Host is Windows NT 4.0, with the normal Win32 host. Guest is Linux
2.0.32 with the normal vncviewer. Window manager is KDE Beta 3.
