I'll be adding back the list, because this may be of interest for other
X2Go Server is not using a daemon for its normal mode of operation, so
there's nothing "started" (neither automatically nor manually) after
installation. The init script that is automatically is merely running
"x2gocleansessions" to get rid of stale/disconnected/terminated
sessions. (But creating sessions will still work even with this
disabled. You just may have a mess on your hands afterwards...)
Every session is started by X2Go Client (or PyHoca-*) via SSH. Both
launch x2gostartagent via the SSH connection to the remote server *when
creating a new session*.
Thus, once you install x2goserver, it's ready to use (minus special
features which come in via, e.g., x2goserver-xsession.)

Ok, that's more interesting and actually suitable for the bug report.
Please start up cmd.exe, then:
x2goclient.exe --debug > debug.log 2>&1
The debug log could potentially be helpful in tracking this down. When
you respond, please make sure to CC firstname.lastname@example.org.
