I am using Windows 7 Remote Desktop client to connect to xrdp running on Fedora 15. It connects with no problems and I am able to log into my KDE desktop after entering username and password.

But after maybe 2 to 5 minutes, the mouse clicks will no longer work. I can still move the mouse and I can hold down mouse to move my KDE program windows around. During that 2~5 minutes, I was doing noting special. Maybe switching back and forth between Windows and Linux (xrdp session) using Alt-Tab a few times. Did some typing on Windows and Linux (xrdp session), copy&paste. That's about it.

On my Linux machine, I am running xrdp as a service. Here are some information about it:

$ ps ax | grep xrdp
1335 ? S 0:21 /usr/sbin/xrdp
1383 ? S 0:00 /usr/sbin/xrdp-sesman

$ xrdp --version

    I am also having this problem when using xrdp 0.5.0 when connecting to Ubuntu 11.10.

    I am not sure how to reproduce the error, but when it happens it seems like the alt key is stuck being held-down. The only way I can click items is if I hold down control.

    The only way to fix it so far is to logout of the user account and disconnect the rdp session. Upon re-login the issue is corrected (until it happens again)
