Remote Desktop Client To Console - BROKEN in RDC 6.1

As I have written before, it is possible to connect to the console on a windows 2003 server using remote desktop and the /console switch.

This doesn't work now in version 6.1 of remote desktop client (which you apparently get with Vista service pack 1).

But you now have an /admin switch which does the same thing.

More detail on this can be found here, but the bottom line is that Microsoft has changed the console behavior in 2008 server, and also changed the RDC client to be in line with it.
