Hi Tim,

  Crashes are usually good because then you can install the package with 
debug-symbols, run it through gdb and get a back trace. If you report it 
on FreeRDP's issue-list on Github together with a stack trace they 
should be able to fix it.

  But then, if you are using the FreeRDP that comes in the distros you 
might run into issues that are already fixed in master. FreeRDP hasn't 
been the best project with respect to timely put it 
mildly :-) I have very high expectations for FreeRDP 2.0.
