Hi,

I get the following error:

[bobo@darkstar bobo]$ rdesktop -u florian -m
165.218.xxx.xxx
ERROR: get font 7:235
ERROR: get font 7:235
ERROR: this shouldn't be happening

Normally it works (at least with 1.2.0-beta1). Today I
tried to logon and it crashes. I upgraded to 1.2.0 but
that didn't fix it.

Maybe I have more windows open than normaly. I can see
the Windows XP logon screen and enter my password. I
can sometimes see it is trying to display a very busy
desktop with several overlapping Outlook, Excel, ...
applications (frames), but then it crashes.

best regards,
Florian

    I'm having the same problem with Windows Server 2003. It's
    happening because I forced the server to only allow 1 logon
    per username, and I'm trying to reconnect to a session I
    already had open on another computer. When I tried it from
    another machine with the MS RDP client, it did indeed steal
    the session from rdesktop, and rdesktop disconnected from
    the server when the connection was closed. However, even
    after closing the session on the other computer, rdesktop
    cannot reconnect to it. The server is running RDP 5.2- I
    don't know what version it's using to talk to rdesktop.

    This is most likely fixed. Can anyone repeat this problem
    with the latest rdesktop version?
