      Description

      While the various RDP caches have previously been enabled by default for FreeRDP, this changed with commit 5a2c249 for releases 2.0.0 and later. The glyph cache is now marked as "experimental" and is disabled by default.

      Unfortunately, while the failures within the caches have been reported upstream via GitHub, FreeRDP has stated that the cache system within the library is known to be broken and that there is no intent to fix:

      https://github.com/FreeRDP/FreeRDP/issues/6505#issuecomment-705732350

      We should consider ways to safely disable these caches by default without overly breaking backward compatibility.
