When tightnvcserver is running there is only 
the CLUI on the Linux console.  tightvnc uses 
the X server and these run in the background.

Desktops.OpenDoc telnet://peter@w.x.y.z 
does the same much faster here ... but probably 
your machine is faster than mine.

MR+MM will send any characters including CR, LF 
and Tab.

I'll guess that you should use XDMCP so that 
one server can support multiple client processes.
Unfortunately the man pages don't explain.
