Having a large desktop will NOT cause the message "Connection rejected by
user" to be returned. Instead, you will usually get the (less helpful)
"Connection closed unexpectedly" message, and an error in your Windows
Application Event Log.
The problem Yann is seeing will be resolved in VNC Free Edition 4.1 (which
may already be released by the time you read this...). His problem is NOT
related to KJ's problem at all!
