[K12OSN] Help needed: rdesktop timeout problem

I'm not aware of a setting in rdesktop that would cause a timeout (That
doesn't mean there isn't one, just that I'm not aware of one).  There is
a setting in the Windows Terminal Server that can log out an inactive
session after a certain amount of time.  120 seconds seems awfully
quick, but maybe somebody set it like that by accident?  

I don't have one in front of me, so I can't tell you exactly where that
setting would be.
