OK, I’ve (separately) reported the bug to xrdp upstream.

Still not happy with this… it used to “just work”, and this change
is very likely to break existing software (unless — actually, even
if — that requirement was documented “always”, i.e. not added later).

Would you at least *consider* moving the definition back to some
command line argument? (Changing severity to wishlist now; if not,
we can likely close the bug, but I’d still like you to please at
least consider doing the change.)
