It works correctly for me with RHEL 6.5 versions of rdesktop/xfreerdp and MSWS 2008, however the server should be properly configured. Terminal services role have to be added:
Server Manager -> Actions -> Add roles -> Server roles -> Terminal Services -> ...
Does it fix your problem?
Also the program has to be added in the list of RemoteApps to avoid access denied error (TS RemoteApp Manager -> Add RemoteApp).
Yes, your steps were helpful. It works correctly for me with RHEL 6.6 and Windows 2008 Server. I think it is not a bug.
It works correctly for Windows XP SP3 -> close.
