Logging off RDP session causes server 2003 to reboot

We have a strange situation where some server admins cause the server to reboot when logging off an RDP session to that server.  Not all admins experience this.  Could this be a permissions issue with some admin accounts?

Thanks

I've seen this happen before where there are at the time of log off no other active sessions on the server and there is a Windows Update to install. The server somehow thinks that because there is no one physically logged onto it either at the console or through Terminal Services, no one is using it and therefore it is fine to reboot - just a shame when there's a massive database open on it and everything gets lost during reboot!

The 2 ways I've found of working around this are either a) always leave the console session logged in and locked, so there is always a logged in session on the server or b) disable automatic updates and install updates manually.
