I noticed a strange thing a few minutes ago. I still had the keyboard, video and mouse connected to my WHS box and I was logged in locally as an admin under an account I made that was not "Administrator". I was testing the system to remove the KVM before actually doing it. I then did a Remote Desktop Connection from a computer right next to my WHS box. To my surprise, everything remained the same on the server. I was able to do the RDP session and then walked over and did some operations at the keyboard of the server while still logged in.
Normally, when an RDP session is going on, the user is logged out and only one person has access to the computer under that login/password.
Is this a carry-over from Server 2003 or something else going on?

I think you were on a different session at the server.
The physical console uses session ID=0. If you remote into a server, it will create a new session that is a "parallel universe" of the physical console. There is a switch on the RDP client that will give you session 0. Try using RDP with " /console" following the server name/IP. You should see that the physical console goes dark because you grabbed session ID 0.
You're probably used to the behavior when remoting into XP. It is licensed for only one RDP connection so when you remote in it has to give you session 0 even though you didn't ask for it using /console. WHS is licensed for two RDP connections.
