Re: [Linux-ia64] Rdesktop 1.10

Don't know much about rdesktop or how WTS works, but I was able to get
it to work here at work (pretty neat program, really).  The attached
small patch was needed to avoid a bug that caused the upper 32 bits of
a pointer returned by xmalloc() to be cleared to zero.  There are
certainly better ways of fixing this, but it's probably best to leave
that to the expert (I'm cc'ing Matt on this mail...).
