with xcomposite extension enabled in xorg and a composition manager

How reproducible:

Actual Results:  rdesktop window and decorations appear
semi-transparent and with wrong color

Expected Results:  rdesktop window to behave as other normal windows

A possible workaround for the problem is setting the
XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS environment variable before starting tsclient:

export XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS=1;tsclient

FYI: Fixed in the latest cvs version of xcompmgr.
