OS X And RDP Keyboard Issues

I have an iMac at home with one of the slim wireless keyboards. When remote into my XP desktop at work I have an issue with my # key not mapping properly. Every time I try and enter an # an \ gets entered instead. This gets a bit annoying especially for the case when i have a # in a password. If I logout of my XP desktop and back in it works fine, but if I try and access an already logged on session, that's when the issue occurs.

On a side note, this is not using strait RDP, it is a JAVA RDP client built into the Cisco Web VPN.

Any thoughts?
