rdesktop will not translate altgr correctly (on solaris
at least) if XKB extension is enabled (+kb option for X
server). following patch will disable this extension:

    I don't want to apply this patch without any more background
    information. Do you have any idea *why* AltGr doesn't work
    when XKB is enabled? Have you tried the latest CVS version;
    is this still a problem?
