#369 no keyboard input and subsequent freeze


Using virtualbox 4.2.16 with the RDP screen of the virtual machines.

When I start a virtual machine and start typing, rdesktop 1.8.0 freezes.
rdesktop 1.7.1 works fine.

Steps to reproduce:

Use virtualbox and start a virtual machine, try to attach a desktop with rdesktop.
Press a key, for instance, try to log in.

    I can confirm this as well. 1.7.1 works, 1.8.1 freezes.

    Gentoo 64-bit.

    I ran a bisect (using git-svn). I had to manually backport r1732 (d4cfb09fb2ab28bae1387fcd39742a415b70832b) to allow the UI to start, for several commits. That bisect points to:

    69d84ba659a75b612640382c4080fb7ec3ce3566 is the first bad commit
    commit 69d84ba659a75b612640382c4080fb7ec3ce3566

    Added tcp_ui_run() to prevent ui_select() push data on transport
    which corrupts the stream and prevents a SSL reconnect to work.

    hope this helps
