Package: grdesktop
Version: 0.23-2+b1
Severity: critical
Justification: breaks the whole system

When I launch grdesktop, it eats up the whole memory of my machine 
(1 GB) whithin one or two seconds and freezes the whole system, forcing me 
to do a hard reset. This happens *immediately* after starting grdesktop and
before the grdesktop UI appears. 

I can't say if it is the fault of grdesktop itself, or of rdesktop.
tsclient and rdesktop itself sometimes also freeze the machine, but
this seems to be another bug, because I can't see them eating up the
memory before the freeze happens (of course I could be wrong here, I
don't know for sure).

I really don't know how to find out which component is really
responsible for this bug. It might be rdesktop or grdesktop.

Another curious thing is, that it only happens on one etch machine out of
two (which runs totally stable apart of the grdesktop problem).
On the other one, grdesktop works as expected.

As a side note, I am running the Gnome desktop on a plain X server
without compositing. I am able to reproduce the bug with the nvidia and
the nv driver.
