I cant replicate the error on my x64 Enterprise Windows 7 machine - all works fine for me

Though I was swapping from windows console to windows console as I dont have an Ubuntu VM

just tried from my home machine to vCenter   - same thing  - just to discount linux I tried with a 2008 R2 Server and a Windows 7 x32 clients, same problem.
and to discount a client with vmware tools on it I tried with my linux router - same problem

 - Same problem If I connect to straight to ESXi as well :( (build 4.1.0, 260247)

Hi

I cannot remember when I get this issue(if connected to a ESX or vCenter), but I know with my laptop I get this issue.

But since I connect to different ESX version or ESXi and also to vCenter, I think happen with all connections.

But honestly I never seen this as a VMware bug, but a Windows bug. But now...
