mmmann, there are many questions you haven't answered. They may help us address it further. I would do it myself, but I can't seem to reproduce it.
If you could answer my questions, I would do my best to reproduce it:
Are my steps correct?
Does this issue still reproduce?
Is it constant? Happens every time?
Are you sure that Remote Desktop Connection causes this issue? What makes you believe that?
Otherwise, you could help us investigate by anwsering Jamie Nicol's questions:
Can you try disabling hardware acceleration and checking if the issue still reproduces?
Do you know whether this is a long-standing issue, or has it only started to occur recently? If recently, would you be able to use mozregression to find out what caused the issue?
