Sadly, this is the case with Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection client. The OS X version is garbage. Quite a few of us OS X users on my group use XP in a VirtualBox VM just for RDC. The Citrix Receiver client for OS X (which I use sometimes for accessing VCenter) is also very finicky when it comes to 10.7's "Spaces" / Virtual Desktops and being jailed to a specific Desktop.
