Windows RDP to VRDP in full screen fails to draw properly

Reported by: rayhaque Owned by:

I have verified that this problem exists in 2.0.0 in both win32 and Linux branches.

When using MS Terminal Services Client (mstsc/Remote Desktop) to connect to a VirtualBox running VRDP, "full screen" options cause problems. That is, if directing the client to connect in Full Screen through either the GUI, or using the /F switch at the command line the effect is the same. The VirtualBox display is typically drawn into the center, with a black border around it (at connection). Consequential "re-draws" are painted or displayed at the top left corner of the screen resulting in two overlapping desktop displays.

In all cases, the guest was Windows XP SP2, and the machine making the RDP connections were also running Windows XP SP2. This happens with both Linux and Windows as the "host" running 2.0.2.

Can be and has been reproduced.
