Package: freerdp2-x11
Version: 2.0.0~git20170725.1.1648deb+dfsg1-7
Severity: important
Tags: a11y

Dear Maintainer,

I've installed testing relesae of Debian and found following issues:

issued commands - works as expected on freerdp package 1.1 (Debian stable), does not on backage 2.0 (current testing release):

aptitude install freerdp2-x11
xfreerdp /clipboard /u:admin /v: /smartcard:"Alcor Micro Corp. AU9540 Smartcard Reader"
xfreerdp /clipboard /u:admin /v: /serial:COM8,/dev/ttyACM0

1. redirect of serial port accepts only one number, for example "COM10" error
Output if serial port nubmer has more than one decimal:
#xfreerdp /clipboard /u:admin /v: /serial:COM10,/dev/ttyACM0

[21:57:34:188] [3331:3332] [ERROR][com.freerdp.client.x11] - Failed to check FreeRDP file descriptor

2. redirect of serial port does not work at all
freerdp is able to start using commands above, server can see the redirected port, but the communicanion does not work on version 2.0

3. redirect of smartcard does not work at all
the server can not see any redirected device
