xrdp_disconnect_display_10: No such device or address


I have xrdp running on a CentOS 5.5 machine. It works fine with Xvnc, that is I can connect via remote desktop from Windows7 just fine. The problem with Xvnc is that it uses block-based transmission and therefore it runs a bit slow. After some searching I stumbled upon X11rdp and I thought I'd give it a try.

I followed the steps described on KernelCrash blog: , that is I checked-out the source code from the SVN repo and compiled it. Now I can use the sesman-X11rdp module to log-into xrdp, however after it has established the connection the remote desktop is distorted/noisy (looks similar to when you select the a high resolution in Windows on very old monitors). When I look in the /tmp folder of my remote CentOS host I see that it has created two files. An .X10-lock file and one other file called xrdp_disconnect_display_10.
cat: xrdp_disconnect_display_10: No such device or address
When I run X11rdp from the command line of the remote host I get:
# X11rdp :11

FreeFontPath: FPE "/opt/X11rdp//lib/X11/fonts/misc/" refcount is 2, should be 1; fixing.
The sesman-Xvnc option still works fine. Does anyone have any idea why this is happening, or how I can fix it? If so, please let me know.
