But I think what McLoughlin and pals are working on will allow the session that 
is running on the server to continue running even if the vncviewer disconnects. 
  Right now, calling vncserver via xinetd gives you a regular login similar to 
what a thin client sees.  Likewise, when the vnc client disconnects, the session 
is shut down, just like when a thin client disconnects.  But McLoughlin's will 
allow the session on the server to keep running, allowing you to disconnect at 
one client, go to another client, reconnect, and your apps are still running. 
It makes it more akin to the way the vncserver on a Windows box works.
