The problem ended up being a problem with the Windows NT (vncserver)
side.  Apparently, the screen saver kicked in, that required a
password.  At this point, I was no longer able to connect, until I
entered the password on the server.

I sure can't wait until vncserver can be run as a service.

I'm afraid I don't have your original mail handy.  Could you give me a 
brief reminder of the problem you're having, please?
