>>To get this working I had to do a few tweaks which included removing the windows machine form the domain and enabling fast user switching and the welcome screen.

UPDATE _ I got it working on a machine on our Domain. Well kind of...

Couldn't get it working on the domain machine because the corporate group policy prevented me from using fast user switching and the welcome screen.

I disabled the desktop using gpedit.msc on the target machine. I also added a shortcut to the startup menu containing "C:\seamlessrdp\seamlessrdpshell.exe explorer.exe". Now all I do is "rdesktop -A targetmachine.ADdomain.corporation.com -u user.name -p Pass.Word" and I get the task bar. Advantage of this is you can log off using the taskbar when you are done.
