VMWare ESXi V4.1 Accesses Via Remote Desktop and Desktop Backgound

I customize the Windows desktop by color for the different machine types i.e. Active Directory, Exchange 2007, and XP client. When I view the Windows Machines via the ESXi VSphere client console, all color schemes are correct. When I access the same machines via remote desktop the unique desktop color does not appear. All desktops default to blue and the ability to customize Display Properties --> Background is not accessable.

Is this normal behavior for an ESXi host accessed via remote desktop?  Is there a work-around to get the desired color scheme to show?
