	Has anyone gotten their Ubuntu machine to connect via RDP to Windows 8 
Consumer Preview?

	I'm running 11.10 x64. I've tried various settings in Remmina and 
rdesktop/grdesktop; to no avail. The best I've gotten is a black window. 
Other settings produce a list of errors.

Wait, after riddling with settings in rdesktop, it seems that if I leave 
sound off, it connects. Sound on local causes issues...

Enable Force Bitmap update helps as well.

Turning off sound in Remmina allows that to connect as well.

Time to look if there are bug reports filed, I suppose. If someone else 
has the time (and knows how) to submit a bug report, I'd appreciate the
