I think its an rdesktop bug related to pointer shadowing. Try to disable "pointer shadow" at control panel/mouse for a temp. solution. I have not observed this problem w/ freerdp or mstsc

Thanks. Changing that setting does seem to have worked.

FWIW, I experienced this behavior intermittently last week on Windows 8.1 to Server 2012R2 using the windows built-in mstsc.exe.  I.e. It may not be a rdesktop issue.
