(I took the liberty to CC maintainers of other packages involved, please
read my request at the end)

I'm happy to inform you that Remmina 1.2 indeed fixes this bug (and a
couple of other problems).

Backporting it to Stretch was not easy, though:

* Remmina 1.2 needs freerdp2. Backporting freerdp2 was straightforward.

* On the other hand, libssh-dev version from Stretch (0.7) depends on
libssl1.0-dev, which lead to an unsolvable build-dependency problem
since Remmina 1.2 build-depends on libssl-dev, but libssl1.0-dev and
libssl-dev conflict with each other, so 0.8 had to be backported too.

* libssh 0.8 builds under Stretch, but one of the tests failed with
libgcrypt 1.7.6, so 1.7.8 (or later) had to be backported also.

The good news is that backporting those four packages didn't need any

Once Remmina 1.2 enters Sid and then Buster, I'd be happy to maintain
official backports of those four packages (if their respective
maintainers don't want to), hence the CCs. IMHO this would be a *great*
service to the community, especially since Remmina was plainly removed
from Stretch (see #863302).
