I think remote desktop is for controlling a running desktop session.
It should always work to have the local XServer connect to the remote login 
manager (if this option is enabled).

I use this with Xnest (XServer running as a window of another XServer) to run 
CD burnding sessions on my other machine.

Another possibility might be to use a NoMachine NX server. If I remember 
correctly newer versions even allow to suspend and reconnect to a session.
