We're observing what we think is a bug on the following setup:

 

Microsoft Remote Desktop Version 10.9.5 (2179) on macOS 14.2.1 (23C71) as client, xrdp 0.9.24 on Rocky Linux 9.3 as server. Client is an Intel MacBook Air.

 

When reloading a session, the resolution defaults to 1920x1080 on a 3840x2160 external display. When doing the same exercise on the MacBook Air, without an external display attached, the resolution defaults to 1440x900, which is not the laptop's native resolution.

 

The resolution is easily fixed with xrandr in the Linux environment, but this needs to be executed after every reset of the connection.
