VNC by default let's the user on the other end see what is happening. Ultra VNC has a button you can disable the remote screen with in a windows environment. I am not sure if the VNC viewer built into Ubuntu has this functionality.

I am currently at work where I am stuck on a windows box. I will look on my Ubuntu box when I get home and see if I can find anything similar.
