It certainly looked easy when I glanced at it, although I really need to
be doing "real work" this week so I'm resisting the temptation to look
harder. Please could you share your patches?

And if you have the inclination to also look at backporting the collab
patches I've attempted to consolidate in that would be
much appreciated!

Probably, yes. I assume you do have the updated freerdp packages
installed, for receiving a shared screen? And freerdp-server if you want
to share your own? The error handling is fairly much non-existent for
now; it'll spawn 'xfreerdp' or 'freerdp-server' but just fail silently
if it doesn't work.

I've just been in a screen-sharing session as a recipient, and that much
seems to work fine here. But *sending*, and file transfer of large files
in both directions, seemed to deadlock work initially and then deadlock.
Precisely what did you see? Can you capture 'pidgin -d' output when you
attempt it?
