I have been able to run several sessions with the same configuration
file using nxclient 2.1 from NoMachine and a FreeNX server with a 2.1
backend. nxclient 3.1 terminates the running session when you launch a
new one and I haven't seen any way to change this in the client.  It
could be possible to do the same using an open source NX client but I
haven't tried that.
