Loop to keep rdesktop open

Hi guys.
I need some kind of a loop that will keep rdesktop active all the time after i start the xwindows. in other words i want it to reopen the rdesktop upon cancelling or closing by users. i tried wait but i could not get it to work. I am using slack ware with the basic tab manager xwindows.
Thank you

oops, didn't read carefully ..
rdesktop will be started by the user, so simply write a shell for them which calls rdesktop in a infinite loop

Oh yes, and a painful transition it was... Was up late patrying(! That doesn't happen often these days:)... And then played around a bit with my new x86_64 (fsc 800s... 3200+ with 1GiB RAM, SATA etc (vias sata, so I had to go with a 2.6 kernel and libsata)... perhaps made around your parts Achim?-)... Completely forgot my eldest sons scout initiation... And the daylight savings.... Talk about the Mother of all headaches:-). Not so fun pretending to be all enthusiatic about his ceremony:P.
Nice to see you a bit more active too Achim.

Sorry for this offtopic blurb khashayar01.
