Risk of RDP over VPN?

I have a VPN and want to grant a user RDP to his desktop.
He has citrix access and Terminal server, but sometimes it's not always working as expected.

What risk do you think this might bring?

Thank you,

To RDP over a proper VPN is secure. As long as the user is actually RDPing to an internal address and not just a NATed port on the firewall. (I've seen admins do this before.)

You can also RDP over HTTPS for better security, as well.  

More importantly, this seems to be more of a bandaid to the original issue, which is the reliability of your remote Citrix/Terminal server connection.  Why is the Citrix/Terminal server connection unstable?  For example: If the user(s) connect to Citrix over VPN via an IPSec tunnel - You may need to adjust VPN clients MTU setting to avoid dropping packets (like with Cisco's IPSec VPN Client).  My preferrence is Cisco's AnyConnect VPN client and/or Citrix Access Gateway these are both SSL VPN solution, which typically are more stable.
