The march 13th, 2018 Windows update broke a few things.
The actual errors encountered depend on the windows version of
the system you're connecting to and on the configuration of that

I'm currentently connecting without problems to several windows server
versions with freerdp downloaded from the git master at March 28, 2018.

Apart from a version adjustment no changes where needed in the
SlackBuild script.
