Segmentation fault - rdesktop 1.7.1

Hi all,

I seem to be having an issue with my rdesktop on my Debian Wheezy machine. When it is attempting to log into my Windows desktop on a Windows Server 2008R2, it sometimes get to the point of logging in and fails or when just running the rdesktop command, it fails with:

"Segmentation fault"

I'm not really sure where to start with this one, as it was working absolutely fine yesterday and as far as I am concerned, nothing has changed on my machine over night.

Reading about seems to be related to memory that the CPU cannot access, but not really sure where to look at this issue.

Can anyone suggest any pointers?

Seems to be working now, not sure what caused this issue or resolved it, other than not using my machine for a couple of hours.
