freerdp (freerdp and freerdp2) doesn't work with current default x2go:

$ xfreerdp /size:1700x1000 /u:USER /p:PASS /v: /cert-ignore
connected to
X Error of failed request:  BadLength (poly request too large or
internal Xlib length error)
  Major opcode of failed request:  18 (X_ChangeProperty)
  Serial number of failed request:  41
  Current serial number in output stream:  45

The bug report for FreeRDP
(https://github.com/FreeRDP/FreeRDP/issues/4920) came to the
conclusion that it requires the BIG-REQUESTS extension, which is
disabled in x2go.  Indeed removing these lines in
/etc/x2go/x2goagent.options fixes the issue:

# Disable BIG-REQUESTS, nx-libs does not implement this extension correctly.
# Leads to all sorts of weird crashes if left enabled.

I'm using this for a day now without "weird crashes", but still assume
it's probably not the best idea.
