I telnet to my solaris 2.8 server and login.  I then type "vncserver" and create a vncsession.  Then, I use my vnc viewer client on my laptop to connect to the vnc session without any problems at all.  All is well up till now.  Then, I type exit in my telnet session to close it.  When I do this, my vnc session goes to a grey screen without any terminal windows.

Why is this happening?
