Question what's the best config to run rdesktop

I'm running red hat 8, latest patches, with K desktop, latest patches, and would love to run rdesktop, but when I run, I get a little black square around the mouse pointer.. Works OK, but just can't see what I'm clicking on. Goes away when I exit - box only appears in the rdesktop window. What config are you running if you DON'T have the problem. Can't find any mention of this problem anywhere and nobody seems to have it but ME! (sniff).

I'm running rdesktop 1.2.0 on redhat 9 and I'm seeing the same problem you're reporting - mouse pointer with a black square around it. Did you ever get it resolved? Has anyone else seen this?
