Hi all,

  I am using rdesktop as a terminal client to connect to Windows Terminal Server 
over years without problems until now. I have a problems with five Windows 2008 R2 
servers: point cursor turns black when I connect to them. But this problem 
disappears if I turn on windows 7 theme on these servers, but performance it is very 
very bad.

  This problem only appears with windows 2008 R2 and not on Windows 2008 SP2 or 
Windows 2003 R2 servers.

  I have tried to add: Option "SWcursor" "true" (nvidia graphics card using native 
nvidia drivers), on my xorg.conf without luck.

  My laptop is centOS 5.4 fully updated with rdesktop-1.6.0-3.

  Any ideas??
