I just started up this project again after a long hiatus. My one GPU task was chugging along just fine on my work computer until I went home and checked the computer using remote desktop. Does the message in the title refer to the fact that I'm connected using Remote Desktop? I can't think of anything else.

Correct. You cannot use Microsoft Remote Desktop (the RDP protocol) with BOINC GPU workunits. GoToMyPC, TeamViewer, VNC, LogMeIn, etc. would work fine. I prefer TeamViewer myself and the last time I checked, it was free for personal use.

So, how do I get the WU started again? I disconnected my RDP session, waited about a half hour, and then reconnected. The progress hasn't changed since I disconnected.

You will probably have to restart the pc, but you can first try exiting Boinc and then restarting it first. Every time you use the RDP stuff it will stop crunching the gpu units, this is just the way it is. As Slicker said try one of the other programs on the list.
