There's no reported bugs of that nature for grdesktop.
;Problem with the Windoof machine (firewall settings, permissions, rdp session invite expired, ip address)
;Problem with resolving the Windoof hostname to an IP address
;Problem with the rdesktop or grdesktop packages
Check the Windoof machine if you can - if access was via an "invite", generate a fresh invite, if possible reboot Windoof.
If you don't know the Windoof machine IP address try using ping (as root in a terminal window) to convert the Windoof hostname into a ip address)
Try connecting with grdesktop using the ip address instead of the hostname. If the Windoof machine is not on the same sub-net this won't necessarily work.
Post your results - if you are still having problems we can use rdesktop to pinpoint the problem.
Also (I should have asked earlier) is the Windoof machine on the same sub-net?
If it's not - is it behind a stand-alone firewall/router?
Are you enabling encryption?
Hope you're not in a hurry (other's can assist) - I'll be back in the morning.

"I'm just so sick of airports, sitting on planes on runways and the
planes won't take off.
Every time I read about a hijacking on the news I just think to myself
- just do it - let's see how far you get, I paid and didn't get off the
I've thought about that too - dreamed of it - putting a gun to the
pilot's head. That would feel so good.
"this is a hijacking"
"where do you want to go - Cuba?"
"No, I want to go where this plane was supposed to be five hours ago"
That's right, I'm hijacking this plane to it's scheduled destination."
