rdesktop keys

I have rdesktop setup on Gentoo. We're using it to remote into some Windows machines. The problem is that some of our developers uses short-cut keys heavily. Some times the keys would go crazy for no apparent reason. I mean like hitting "l" would do something completely different from what one would expect.

Anyone know anything about this? Does rdesktop have special key combinations?

CTRL-ALT-ENTER switches between full screen and a window. Most other keystrokes are passed straight to the host. There is obviously a buffer and if the network pauses then the keystrokes will queue so creating a sudden flurry of activity. (Well that is what I always thought it was). I found sorting out the keymaps fiddly and now use GnomeRDP as a frontend.
