rdesktop keyboard mapping

I am using rdesktop on OpenSuse 10.2 and I mostly remote into a couple Windows systems. I want certain key combinations, such as Alt+F4, to be sent to the Windows desktop, but instead, Alt+F4 closes the rdesktop session.

Sometimes, the key combinations go to Windows after I have pressed some other combination of keys, but I do not know what that combination is.

Thanks in advance for your help,


** I found that pressing Alt + Tab after the Windows sessions has been established will enable Windows keyboard mapping, so that Alt + F4 will close Windows applications within the session. **
