i haven't tried the desktop sharing between KDE and windoze.

this error means the Ultra is not configured for enough file 
descriptors per process (the defaults are pretty low).

i would try this:

in a shell on the Ultra 5:

prompt%> ulimit -Ha
[ should say: nofiles(descriptors) 8192 (amongst other things) ]

prompt%> ulimit -Sa
[ should say: nofiles(descriptors) 1024 (amongst other things) ]

if either of these values are lower, then here's the fix: add the 
following two lines in /etc/system at the very end (requires root 
privileges), and then reboot the Ultra:

set rlim_fd_max=8192
set rlim_fd_cur=1024

This raises the soft and hard limits for the number of file 
descriptors per process.

Let me know! :-)
