I have a server side program I am trying to debug, and I remote in throw various computers.  Occasioningly, I forget to close the Remote Connection on one computer, and when I log in from a different computer (all using the same account), sometimes it tells me I am above my maximum number of connections, sometimes if just give me a new desktop.  

In either event, is there anyway to logout the remote desktop connection so that I can get back to the orginial logins workspace?

yes.  go to the console, log in and run TSADMIN.EXE
here you will see the disconnected and inactive sessions and can kill them
this is the same as going to administrative tools\TS Manager
this generally does not work remotely on 2003 machines in RD mode, i guess because they aren't really terminal servers

You can also configure these sessions to go away after a specified time
go to admin tools\TS configuration
here on the SESSION tab you can set a timeout for disconnected sessions
