I've run into a problem with one of my customers with a whole bunch of thin
clients running desktop connections distributed across 2 XPe servers.  For
some reason, on one of the servers the CPU utilization pegs at close to 100%
by the end of the day.  When I check processes I notice several instances of
winlogon.exe, usually one per user, eating up all the CPU time.  This is
only happening to one of the two boxes, and only for desktop connections.  I
don't have the problem with any other published apps.  Only thing I can
think of that's different between servers is the one with problems also
hosts the IMA database.


The servers are dual processor DL380's running Win2k SP3 and MF XPe SP2/FR2.
Clients are all Wyse 3200 series CE based winterms.
