[K12OSN] NX works great . . . mostly!

Anytime I've suspended an NX connection I've resumed it from the same computer.  One time I didn't and the resume failed, leaving the NX sessions running on the server end.  I think in that situation my attempt at resuming was using a different display size, too.
IIRC, this is known problem with at least freenx, discussed fairly often on their discussion list.

The problem I have, and I think that others are reporting is
that sessions don't always terminate or reconnect properly.
That is, you randomly end up with sessions and agents still
running on one or both ends even if you said to terminate
and sessions that won't reconnect when you want them to.
I've suspected that they are related to connecting from
different machines and perhaps to having different display
sizes on each.   Do you always connect from the same
client or can you alternate without problems?
