The Windows version of x2goclient shows "a" wrong server key fingerprint. Both
the Linux client and PuTTY on Windows show the correct fingerprint.

x2goclient on Windows:

> The server is unknown. Do you trust the host key?
> Public key hash: SSH proxy connection error: (address omitted):22 -
> 57:a8:d5:ae:c6:9d:6a:a2:d1:4e:a4:c4:cd:51:7e:c8:72:75:51:5d

PuTTY on Windows:

> The server's host key is not cached in the registry. You have no guarantee
> that the server is the computer you think it is.
> The server's rsa2 key fingerprint is:
> ssh-rsa 2048 f3:27:28:1a:16:92:7e:a0:74:26:2f:ce:2e:54:f7:62
> If you trust this host, hit Yes to ...

On the host I'm trying to connect to:

$ for i in /etc/ssh/*.pub ; do ssh-keygen -lf $i ; done
1024 27:6d:55:b1:f0:60:b6:06:ea:49:a1:c7:d5:4f:60:e9
/etc/ssh/ssh_host_dsa_key.pub (DSA)
2048 0e:68:68:d6:ed:be:d2:11:2f:11:60:41:97:b4:15:33 /etc/ssh/ssh_host_key.pub
2048 f3:27:28:1a:16:92:7e:a0:74:26:2f:ce:2e:54:f7:62
/etc/ssh/ssh_host_rsa_key.pub (RSA)

Note: It's also really hard to figure out for which key x2go is trying to show
me the fingerprint. Both PuTTY and OpenSSH show the key type, so it's really
obvious. With x2go, I have to guess. (That's worth a different bug report, I know.)
