Try using the "rdesktop" command directly from the command-line (see "man rdesktop" for instructions); and see if it has the same problem.

You gave "-k" without any arguments. Try
Code:
rdesktop -u samer -f 192.168.0.1

rdesktop is far superior anyway. Krdc tries to load too much stuff by default and slows things way down. Just do rdeskop {hostname} for a quick test. My standard for fullscreen is this: rdesktop -a 16 -fullscreen -u {username} -p {password} {hostname}.
