Did you log on over Remote Desktop first?
I seem to remember someone having trouble with TSVNCache being started
in the context of the user first logging on over RD and everybody else
not getting any overlays.. Maybe RD applications are even suspended
when a session is disconnected (eg. not logged off)?
Just a wild guess. Perhaps check which user TSVNCache is running as
in the non-working configuration.

Mebbe. Windows 2000 Server did fiddle with registry keys when
installing programs over RD in some TS configurations (which could be
worked around by installing programs with the 'Add/Remove programs'
control panel applet). Shouldn't apply to a standard XP Pro though.
And I'd expect the installer to give you an error message if something
security-wise is going wrong. My best guess is the first mentioned
TSVNCache stuff :-).

If you cannot figure out what's going on, adding this to the FAQ might
be a good idea.
Perhaps with "mstsc /console" as a workaround, if that works (could you try it?)
