Dual Monitor and RDP (rdesktop) error


Hi. I have two Nvidia Geforce4 cards, one AGP and one PCI. I used the Nvidia display utilities to enable Xinerama...which appeared to give me the type of display I needed. After implementing that, I attempted connecting to my Windows 2003 Terminal Server and got the following error...

slavojzizek@ashland1 ~]$ rdesktop -f 204.69.225.104
Autoselected keyboard map en-us
X Error of failed request: BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)
Major opcode of failed request: 78 (X_CreateColormap)
Value in failed request: 0x0
Serial number of failed request: 7
Current serial number in output stream: 8


I know this is probably one of the problem-areas, so this is my xorg.conf file:

# nvidia-settings: X configuration file generated by nvidia-settings
# nvidia-settings: version 1.0 (buildmeister@builder3) Thu Nov 9 17:56:12 PST 2006

-------------------------

Any help would be appreciated. The result I want is to be able to remotely connect to my Terminal Server and put that display on either one of my monitors as I see fit.

As an addendum to my first question, one of my monitors which is a Sceptre Naga 19'' Widescreen...appears to have some "ghosting" issues that I never experienced when using it with WinXP. Any clues on that?
