Description IanB 2016-07-07 03:27:30 UTC
Description of problem:

Using Gnome shell with Wayland, and running rdesktop, the key combination alt+tab (used for switching windows) does not get passed to the remote desktop, instead causes local windows to switch. This only happens under Wayland. 

How reproducible: always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch rdesktop session to remote host
2. open several windows on remote host
3. with mouse focus on rdesktop, press alt+tab to switch windows

Actual results:

windows on local Gnome session are switched

Expected results:

windows on remote host should be switched

Initial testing was done with rdesktop, however I've discovered freerdp has the same issue.

Duplicate of bug #1285770. Affects most or all remote desktop and virtual machine software.
