What rdesktop version did you try?
I'm currently running rdesktop-1.1.0-pl19-8-5, and I don't notice a
difference between that and the Microsoft client. The patch level
releases aren't exactly 'prominently' displayed for download..
I also use it to connect over the Internet to a remote TS, on a 128k
line. So it shouldn't be a bandwidth issue...

I would like this, my current patch level of rdesktop doesn't allow
cut/paste between local and remote. Maybe a newer version does?
