Thanks to Jörg who brought up that Teradici just released a new firmware, version 3.4.1. These are the changes:
- Support for pre-session user authentication using Gemalto .NET smartcards
- Enhancements to VMware View client login dialog
- Support for resetting a virtual machine (VM) before logging in
- Moved the cursor to the password field by default when the user name is pre-populated.
- Fixed problem that prevented zero clients from establishing View brokered connections in systems that include the “&” and “’” characters in the domain name.
- Fixed problem where two parameters in the DHCP request were in the wrong order. In some deployments this resulted in devices using gateway address 0.0.0.0.
- Fixed problem where some keys were incorrectly mapped on the Czech keyboard.
- Fixed memory leak problem introduced in FW release 3.4.0 that caused the device network interface to become non-responsive. When this happens the device does not support sessions and cannot be managed via the network interface.

- Fixed problem where the OSD may display incorrect certificate data when a smart card contains more than one certificate.
- Fixed problem where the Seac Banche® SB 1600 scanner does not work.

- Fixed problem introduced in FW release 3.3.0 where desktop icons become fuzzy while playing video. The problem occurs while network impairments are present.
- Fixed problem introduced in FW release 3.4.0 where visual artifacts appear on the zero client secondary display while the host OS boots.
