Problems with WinXP and Terminal Services

TS is faster. I use TS when available, and VNC everywhere else. 
VNC doesn't do native console on Unix, you need another program like
x0frbserver for that.

WinXP TS has a bug, you cant always log out, the system can either hang or
lock. I've played with VNC/TS trying to see what was the cause, and TS
doesn't like rapid fire disconnect/reconnects. But Ive had VNC core on Unix
also.

You need it to take control of the console.  Until TS includes console
support, it will remain a lesser used product than VNC.

What's the use of using vnc in a terminal server configuration? As far as I
know it's just using an other protocol to get the windows on the desktop.

If it's for displaying on unix, the terminalserver has an X11 option to get
a X11 display.
If it's for takeover, put the vncserver in userspace and off you go.
If it's for security, What security?
If it's for something else, explain your usage.
