Bug Description

rdesktop 1.6.0-2ubuntu1

Running rdesktop in seamlessrdp mode will segfault every other session. The warning appears every time. 2 tries are needed in order to get a session. The first time, rdesktop will segfault.

Except I don't get the warning.
If I use seamlessrdp to open windows explorer and then use start button to open any other window the entire thing shuts down and I simply get

I wish I could add more but I am seeing the same as all of the others.

rdesktop -A -s "c:\seamlessrdpshell.exe c:\firefox.exe" -u <username> -p <password> <>

Every other execution works correctly. The odd ones get a "segmentation fault" and the window dies.
