I see what you mean - however, if you're suggesting we just use an older
freerdp build for the Xfce images, that's not possible, we can't pick
and choose builds like that. It's *possible* to do a 'downgrade' of a
package in Rawhide as a whole (by bumping the Epoch), but we generally
try to avoid doing so as far as possible. It'd certainly need more
discussion on devel@ first.
