Using latest Arctica's NX-Libs xrandr support is far better and multihead support in fullscreen mode with the Linux x2goclient works like a charm.
For example, with MATE, the panels are restricted to the first screen and the second one is acting like a real secondary screen in extended desktop mode with working boundaries when putting applications in fullscreen (ie. they don't extend to the whole display as before but they are restricted to their including screen).

So with the Linux client it works great whereas, with the latest Windows client, it doesn't work at all.
Asking the client to use fullscreen in a multihead setup leads to the client going fullscreen on one screen only as if you had chosen "display x" except that you can't choose the display, it will take the main one in any case.

Would be great to fix this, I suppose this is related to the VcxSrv component.
