I have Windows console (cmd.exe) open running some application with extensive output. Continuous redrawing of the cmd window makes me unable to do anything as both mouse and keyboard are ignored. Seems like output has preference over input. This is a serious issue since only solution I know is to actually go to the Windows machine, log on local console and stop the running process with Ctrl-C. I can't stop it remotely. I'm not sure if this is rdesktop, Windows "server" or RDP protocol issue.
