Maya 2011 lighting with a spotlight.

Hey guys I have positioned a spotlight against a window. The room lights up perfectly the way i want it however there is a distinct circular shape left by the spotlight on the window. How do I get rid of this very noticable circle???

...and Im using mental ray. I've noticed that maya software doesnt have this issue, however id prefer to render with mental ray because of its global illumination attributes.

You can use the light linker to unlink the glass from your spotlight.
