Ticket #10888 (closed defect: wontfix)
RDP guest desktop re-size is not reported back

|Version:||VirtualBox 4.1.20||Keywords:||xfreerdp mstsc re-size|
When connecting with xfreerdp or mstsc a screen resolution change in the guest is not reported back to the rdp client.
If I connect with rdesktop i get a capability 2, capabilitySetType: CAPSTYPE_BITMAP 0x2 with desktopWidth and desktopHeight set to the new guest resolution back from VirtualBox. Which allows rdesktop to resize the client window as well.
VirtualBox doesn't sent this capability set to xfreerdp or mstsc. The guest screen is resized but window size on the client stays the same this way. When the guest resolution gets smaller a black border is shown. When the guest resolution gets bigger only a part (center) of the guest screen is shown which renders the rdp connections unusable most of the time (since the menubar/top bar/.. can't be reached anymore).
xfreerdp 1.0.1 and a recent version from git (gbf02b5b)
mstsc (6.1.7601) on windows 7
4.1.18-r78361 on debian (wheezy and squeeze)
4.1.20-r80170 on OSX
Extension pack 4.1.20-80170
