This is fixed in rdesktop 1.5.  I guess this will be release as an update soon
after release?

I have just upgraded from FC 5 to FC6 and rdesktop has had similar issues to
those detailed above.  Installing rdesktop 1.5 has fixed these issues for me. 
An update d rdesktop package for FC6 would be much appreciated :)

Confirmed that version 1.5.0 fixes the problem.

Downloaded the source rpm from the fedora repo.

Downloaded latest tarball from the rdesktop site.

changed the versions in the spec. . .

built without problem, upgraded cleanly, and fixed the issue!  This is why I
love open source.

Now I need to find some cute child to make puppy dog eyes at the maintainer till
they get it into the updates repo.
