I use a bluetooth headset for music and voip. When I start x2goclient
on Windows 7, it forces the headset into a low-quality profile (no
session is open, just the client). This is expected to happen if an
application wants to use the microphone. I presume x2go opens audio
sources and sinks in order to forward them to a client later and so
Windows thinks it needs to switch to another profile. When I close
x2goclient again, the headset switches back to the high quality
