Remote Desktop fails after remote reboot on Windows XP Pro system

We have a user who uses Remote Desktop to connect to their desktop pc in the office. Port forwarding has been set on the corporate fire wall as the pc has a custom port open for RDP, 4222 to be exact.

The user can connect but when they do a remote reboot of the system, they cannot reconnect until someone logs in locally on that system.

Is there an error message? (The local policy of this system does not allow you to log on locally)

Remote desktop just states that it cannot connect to the remote computer and to try again later. There are no errors in event viewer either.
