Unhappy rdesktop problem


hi,
I have installed rdesktop 1.6 with smart card support.I have a

usb smart card reader which will accept a smart card for login
the remote client.
Here is scenario,
I have plug in the usb smart card reader and invoke pcscd daemon which recognized the smart card.Now i invoke the rdesktop
with scard option it recognized the smart card.But when i unplug
the usb smart card reader and plug it again(while rdesktop is running) it(rdesktop) does not recognized the smart card.This process work perfectly in Windows but in Linux it does not works.
So can any body help me.

but i kill the pcscd daemon but rdesktop does not respond.
for rdesktop to work i have to restart the rdesktop.But i don't
want to restart it.Without restarting the rdesktop client it should automatically respond to the smart card.

Unfortunately, thats the nature of open source. if i were you, i'd be thrilled that my smart card reader works! Have you thought about posting on the rdesktop forums, and perhaps on the forums of your distro here?
