Hi. I'm running Linux Mint 17, with all the latest updates. I'm running rdesktop v1.7.1. It works great unless I use the -P (persistent bitmap caching) option, in which case it's ok until I drag an icon on the desktop of the remote windows computer. When I do that (with -P on), it immediately exits with:

X Error of failed request: BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation) Major opcode of failed request: 53 (X_CreatePixmap)

I have an nvidia video card with the proprietary nvidia driver installed. I don't have any video related issues with any other applications.

output of uname -s is:

Linux ben-LinuxPC 3.13.0-24-generic #47-Ubuntu SMP Fri May 2 23:30:00 UTC 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

The command I'm using for rdesktop (IP address x'd out):

rdesktop -u ned -p foo123 -f -P -a 16 -E -xm xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx &

If I simply remove the "-P" then no crash.

thanks,
Ben

    I meant "uname -a"
