I recently upgraded to RH8 and when using rdesktop
(v1.1 and 1.2 beta) when I swap workspaces, then back
to the rdesktop session black areas and appear as
though the screen has not refreshed.
This is the same under a windowed session or full screen.
This did not happen under RH7.3.
Any ideas?

    I have RH 8.0 on my Dell Laptop (with Ati M6) and all works
    perfectly. Which card do you have? I have not tested 1.2b,
    but 1.1 works also perfectly with Slackware 8.1.

    I have done a lot of work under rdesktop 1.1 and 1.2 and
    have never encountered this on my system or any other system
    I've used with RH8.

    I think the problem might lie in your video card driver, or
    perhaps your XFree86 configuration? But that's just a guess.

    Is this still a problem, anyone? I think these problems are
    gone.
