VNC Connection closing problem

I am having a problem that only started recently.  The symptoms are as
follows...

- I have VNC in app mode running on an NT Server
- the server naturally "locks out" after a time period
- I can connect to the server from a remote machine with VNC
- after the session psw is provided, the NT server screen appears with the
"work station locked" message
- if I move the mouse into the VNC window or try to send a "CTRL-ALT-DEL" to
login, the window disappears
- trying again results in a connection closed error

If I then go to the NT machine, login so the workstation is no longer
"locked" and then return to the remote machine I can VNC in with no problem

I used to be able to access the locked server with no difficulty, send the
"CTRL-ALT-DEL" and login remotely but alas can no longer.

Any ideas would be appreciated.
