Bug Description

Binary package hint: rdesktop

On Intrepid and Jaunty, fullscreen flag (-A) with dual screens forces low 8-bit color.

Using xrandr and virtual screen size, I run:
xrandr --output VGA --left-of LVDS
to get dual screen. When running rdesktop with the -A flag:
rdesktop -A \\PC
the primary monitor will have half of the rdesktop window visible (as if it were covering both screens) and the remote desktop is in 8-bit mode. If I do not use the -A flag, like with -g 1280x1024, it will support the usual color modes.

Not much to the screenshot but that's the problem

Also, if I run the program before using xrandr, then it willo "work" but on the secondary monitor the screen (rdesktop's) will be all white but still clickable.
