The problem actually is that there is no ECDSA key support in libssh2  
(which is used by X2Go Client). Unfortunately, most recent (Open)SSH  
implementation do use ECDSA as the default key type.

Thus, I will merge this bug report with #106 which tackles the same problem.

Mike (who is waiting desperately for the libssh2 developers to  
implement ECDSA)
