1-After updating from Window 10 Ver 1803 to 1809; x2go doesn't work any more.
2- It fails with the following messages:

Loop: PANIC! Can't open options file '/cygdrive/C/Users/Barry'. Error
is 2 'No such file or directory'.

Looking at the "options" files now generated under Ver 1809, they look like:
nx/nx,root=/cygdrive/C/Users/Barry
Pangrle/.x2go,connect=localhost,cookie=064e8b5bdd350e061f76b243b8d5b5e5,port=35936,errors=/cygdrive/C/Users/Barry
Pangrle/.x2go/S-bpangrle-51-1546910140_stDMATE_dp32/sessions:51

An "options" file generated under Ver 1803 looks like:
nx/nx,root=/cygdrive/C/Users/BARRYP~1/X2GO~1,connect=localhost,cookie=e8a3a18f683a68163533a911fad81985,port=45490,errors=/cygdrive/C/Users/BARRYP~1/X2GO~1/S-bpangrle-51-1545005939_stDMATE_dp32/sessions:51

It looks like the old version used to use "BARRYP~1" in the path
instead of "Barry Pangrle" and based on the error messages, it seems
to not be able to trace through the " " in the path name.

3. Expect to read folder with space and replace with ~ instead of space.
4. X2go can't read space, can't replace with ~ and failed.

Also, please list the following info:

The client machine's OS (e.g., “Windows 10 pro version 1809”)
The client machine's version of X2GoClient: 4.1.2.0
The server's OS: CentOS 7, worked with Windows 10 version 1803
