Is that a known protocol limitation or something else?

Try to updgrade to RDP 6.0.

You mean at the client?

There's a setting on the Terminal server that enables\disables automatic login. It might be disabled:
1. Start->Run->tscc.msc
2. under connections, right click RDP-TCP and click properties.
3. Under "logon settings" make sure "Always prompt for password" is not checked.

I just recently ran into this problem on several old Windows 2000 boxes.  Sometimes the setting above isn't enough, you also have to disable the "DontDisplayLastUserName" registry setting.  See this article:
