I found an interesting behavior of the rdesktop when
started (and compiled) under RH 7.2.
When I connect to a W2K box the display is corrupted
wich means that some characters are replaced with
colored boxes. When I start kcontrol and leave it
running in the background everything is fine. As soon
as kcontorl is stopped the next rdesktop has this odd
behavior again while the others wich where opened
while kcontrol was running are still fine.
When I start rdesktop with the resolution wich is
configured on X11 everything is fine nomather kcontrol
is running or not.
