It may just be failing at random and I associated it with coming
from a different machine or having a different screen resolution.
I didn't try it enough to really nail down the cause.  I've been
running vnc for the times I need long-running sessions where
I can reconnect.  This works with the console session which
I don't think is possible with freenx, but I'd prefer freenx
to vncserver sessions if the reconnect worked every time.  It's
kind of neat to start a vmplayer virtual machine session under
vncserver, then disconnect and interact only with the vm once
the network interfaces come up.
