You mention how you start it, what are you using to try and stop it?
Also what version of FreeBSD are you running as a host?
Are you saying you can not connect to the vnc on
and tell windows to shutdown?
Or are you saying you connect to that vnc and even though you told
windows to shutdown it fails to do so?

Sorry for all the questions, and no answer,
but it is not clear exactly what your problem is.
