IIssue: RDP access to Windows boxen has been slow while refreshing or using cmd, Command Prompt. This has been accompanied by high CPU usage by Xorg.bin. I am using an open source ATI driver, the issues's root cause.

I cannot upgrade my driver, so, the solution: To the options for the xfreerdp command line, or "Extra Options" in the settings for an KRDC RDP connection, add the following:

+async-update +async-input /gdi:sw

I suffered with this for some time. The above has provided much relief. HTH
