Remote desktop behaves strangely with AutoLogin

    Here's the scenario:
    2 x Windows 2008 servers running an application. They work as an active/passive pair. When the application is installed it configures AutoLogin and sets it with a specific username and password.
    This is all fine and both servers will login automatically on boot and start the application as desired.
    These 2 servers are located 2 miles from the offices and at certain times remote access is required to the servers.
    A remote desktop session can be initiated to either of the servers and access is obtained using the same username and password used by Auto Login.
    When finished this remote desktop session is disconnected.
    After this, if you then go back to the actual consoles of the servers and try to login locally using the same credentials that the Auto Login is configured you get a "Username or Password is incorrect" message.
    This happens on both the servers, and the only way out of it is to reboot the server.
    We have tested locking the servers locally and unlocking from the console and this works fine.

    Has anyone ever seen anything like this before and if so any ideas on what might be causing this.
