Package: x2gostartagent

If the /tmp/ drive is full and the client tries to connect an error message is displayed that indicates: "Connection failed: Your home directory path contains non-ASCII characters. Aborting session startup.”. This message is caused by the x2gostartagent script to test for ASCII in the path names with a HERE document (<<< $HOME). This results in an error (not enough space) which in turn triggered the misleading error message.

I suggest to add another test for sufficient space before using the HERE document in the script.

Thanks for this great software!
