xRDP - Authentication is required to create a color managed device

Since some recent updates when I connect to the server via xRDP I get the following prompt:

Authentication is required to create a colour managed device
I enter the users password and all is fine but we never previously needed to do this, something has changed in the recent updates.

Having searched for a solution it seems to be related to
PolicyKit - /usr/share/polkit-1/actions/org.freedesktop.color.policy, org.freedesktop.color.policy.create-device
However I can't seem to find an actual working solution, any ideas?
