Flexlm with USB dongle fails if rdp is used

I would like to run Virtualbox on a linux server system with Windows XP as guest. The windows machine should work as a licence manager based on flexlm and a SafeNet USB dongle.
My setup is as follows:
Server OpenSUSE 10.2 Guest: Windows XP Virtualbox: 1.5.6 Network attached to host interface Guest Additions Installed
All works fine up to one feature: if I try to contact the Windows guest via rdp either from Windows remotedesktop or rdesktop on linux the vendor daemon for flexlm says the dongle can't be read any more. Despite of this the hardware manager on windows says the dongle is there and he is working. Closing the rdp connection and restarting flexlm then works fine again. So what does the rdp connection do with the USB? Thanks for any hint. Klaus
