I received an internal question today about the exact same problem on
the exact same configuration. (k12ltsp 5.0/hp t5215)

I built an updated rdesktop version 1.5 package, but that didn't seem to
fix the problem. I have not had the chance to do more than that.

If I find a solution, I'll post it to the list.
