I am using redesktop for accessing windows 2000
Terminal server. Everything works fine. But I have the
following problem.

I am using one windows program in rdesktop (ex :
notepad ) and another program ( ex : acrobat reader )
in my linux box. I need
a freequent switch between two applications. I am using
ALT + TAB in linux for switching appplications. When
ever I use ALT + TAB to switch between the rdesktop &
my linux desktop, every second cycle of ALT + TAB
causes menu highlight of windows program, so either I
have to use my mouse or alt key to bring down the menu
highlight every time.

So any one know How to get rid of the problem ?

[sorry for my bad english]

thanks

    I'm no expert, but seems to me that the Alt keydown gets seen by
    Windows, but focus then switches to Linux, so Windows never sees
    keyup. I think you can get it back when returning to Windows by
    pressing Alt and releasing it again. Same thing may happen with
    Ctrl or Shift keys as well. Hope it works for you.
