rdesktop-vrdp fails to load german keyboard

This bug is reproduceable on the pre-packaged official RPM package of Virtualbox-4.2.16. Maybe it affects other pre-packaged versions for other distros too?
The problem is, that if you run rdesktop-vrp somehost:<someport> -k de to tell rdesktop that it should use the german keymap, rdesktop-vrdp will try to look up the file in various places, including /opt/VirtualBox/rdesktop-vrdp-keymaps, but NOT in /usr/share/virtualbox/rdesktop-vrdp-keymaps/ where the keymaps are being installed by the RPM package. Thus loading the keymap fails.
To temporarily fix it, I added a symlink /opt/VirtualBox which points to /usr/share/virtualbox. But of course it would be nice if this can be fixed correctly, for example by adding this path (/usr/share/virtualbox) to the rdesktop-vrdp source.
