I just looked at your patch.

Requests before patch can get accepted:

  1. Please split up the RDP broker creds as session creds from the  
--close-disconnect change.
  2. Please let the cmdline option start with --broker-...


  3. Don't limit this functionality to RDP sessions only. It is  
useful for all sorts of session
     types (X2Go, DirectRDP, DirectXDMCP if already in (there were  
rumours about such a new feature)).

Thanks for your work on X2Go,
