You are right. May be it should be available as an easy option for those 
who would like to have both local and remote desktops. Our users have 
overwhelmingly embraced the idea of both desktops that I have included 
it in the startup of all users. A small fraction of grandma-type of 
users are taken aback when the blank xrootwindow completely obscures XP. 
One easy solution would be to startup xwin with slightly reduced sized 
root window. Is there any way to set screen size, say 90% of the 
available real-estate?
