I agree, when full screen rdesktop windows are created, they are out of t=
window managers control, so the manager can't focus the window again.
The old behavior would grab the keyboard whenever the cursor moved over t=
window which would in turn focus it. We wanted to eliminate this behavio=
for security resons. Like when your email password window pops up so you
type in your password not knowing you just sent your password to the focu=
control on the terminal server.
Maybe we need a switch to set which way to grab the keyboard.
The current way is more secure but won't work in situations like this.
