I had the same issue, with Windows 10 pro hosts, but the fault is in 
windows, which, by default, tries to negotiate an ancient protocol (NTLM 
using RC4 if I understand correctly).

With modern windows RDP servers there are better protocols available, 
you can get them in remmina by forcing "TLS protocolo security" in the 
advanced tab, security protocol negotiation (second row).

Doing this (after some experimentation with various options) solved the 
issue for me.
