freenx problem after authenticating

Hi there...first post on this forum. Please be nice

I'm using FC4, posted this in the fedoraforum, got 66 views and zero replies so I come to you for guidance and wisdom.

My problem in a nutshell is that I can't seem to connect to my freenx server using my regular non-root user.
Root can connect fine with no problems.
I even created a test account, and I can connect with that without problems.
However, my account with all my personal files and stuff can't connect for some reason.
Everything is fine up to the "Authentication completed" part.
After that, the NX Client just stays there for a long period, followed by the "Session Startup Failed" error.
This is in contrast with other accounts that immediately follow "authentication completed" by "Initializing X protcol" etc until i get my X session.

Anyway, the session startup failed has a details button, which points to the following error:
NX> 148 Server capacity: not reached for user: rayyes
NX> 105 startsession --session="rayyes" --type="unix-kde" --cache="32M" --images="32M" --cookie="******" --link="wan" --kbtype="pc102/en_US" --nodelay="1" --encryption="1" --backingstore="never" --geometry="fullscreen" --media="0" --agent_server="" --agent_user="" agent_password="******""  --screeninfo="969x768x32+render"
This started happening after I was connected from work one day, and the session got sluggish. I killed the client on my windows machine and tried reconnecting, but was faced with the above error....couldn't connect ever since.

I attempted everything I could think of: connecting from a different client, restarting ssh, restarting nxserver, rebooting, killing any hanging sessions on the server, deleting my ~/.nx folder, turning off firewall but no go.

Googling the error turned up some hits, but none that were useful.

I have absolutely zero idea what the deal is, I would appreciate any opinions/suggestions

Are you specifying the correct desktop (KDE/GNOME/...) which is available on the host machine?

Made this mistake once....
