I believe the Thinstation project (thinstation.org) has incorporated some kind of mechanism that will launch a non-dying rdesktop session directly after booting. I am not sure if they do it by continuously restarting the session when it 'times out' or perhaps some kind of keepalive mechanism, but either way you might be able to figure out how they do it. My company has a few thinstations that, for all I can remember, are always displaying a waiting rdp login screen.
