RDP not working for me after update

Hello,

I’ve updated to latest gnome-remote-desktop in EndeavourOS (Arch based):

extra/gnome-remote-desktop 42.2-1 (182.2 KiB 712.6 KiB) [gnome] (Installed)
    GNOME Remote Desktop server

When I try to access my screen from a Windows laptop I get errors.

When using the old Remote Desktop Connection application (mstsc.exe) I see in the log:

When using the newer “Remote Desktop” app from the Microsoft store, I get:

The command line status is:

[user@host ~]$ grdctl status
RDP:
	Status: enabled
	TLS certificate: /home/user/.local/share/gnome-remote-desktop/rdp-tls.crt
	TLS key: /home/user/.local/share/gnome-remote-desktop/rdp-tls.key

This is with Xorg server. Any ideas?

Forgot to mention that this worked for me before the update, though only with mstsc.exe

Just switched to Wayland and I was able to share the screen! So looks like a problem with Xorg only?

Argh! Back in Xorg and now it works… No idea what caused this. I did re-login after updating and then found out about the problem. Not sure how logging out/in twice more (with Wayland inbetween) has fixed it for me…

Will leave this here in case anyone else comes across…
