Did this start recently or has it always been this way since you installed 12.04?

see also the -A option for rdesktop ( -A Enable SeamlessRDP. In this mode, rdesktop creates a X11 window for each window on the server side. This mode requires the SeamlessRDP server side component, which is available from http://www.cendio.com/seamlessrdp/. When using this option, you should specify a startup shell which launches the desired application through SeamlessRDP. Example: rdesktop -A -s 'seamlessrdpshell notepad'. )

comment How do I X forward a Windows application to a Linux system using ssh?
Whether it is mirrored or not depends on your version of Windows. I don't use the OS, but I think you need a 'server' version to not have sessions mirrored. I don't have a machine to test with any more, but long ago it was possible to only get the program window (just like X forwarding) by specifying the program as an argument in launch. MS might have changed this since I last used it.

comment Shift+F2 is ignored when using byobu with PuTTY (Windows 7)
This isn't an ubuntu issue. Windows is likely capturing the key-combination and not sending it. Try to look at Windows / Putty documentation to see (a) how to stop Windows / putty from capturing the key-combination. Alternatively, there may be menu item to send the shift modifier in putty or look into remapping the key via input.rc (unix.stackexchange.com/questions/17012/…) or byobu itself (askubuntu.com/questions/51776/…)

comment How to make show desktop work only on the current workspace?
Interesting, what window manager are you running? For me on 12.04 with Gnome 3 Fallback, Ctrl+Alt+D has exactly the functionality you want already (only minimize windows on the current workspace). So, this seems to be something in the window manager. Edit: Just saw question is tagged with unity, must be a setting or change there.
