Well, this kind of problem should not happen nowadays. So I am very
interested how this could happen. I ask you to provide some more

1. please run setxkbmap -query both outside and inside the (broken) session
and report the output.

1b) If the output differs, you can try to run (inside the session)
setxkbmap -rules ... -model ... -layout ... -variant ... -option ...
with the values the _local_ setxkmap -query reports. Does that help?

2. what kind of session are you using? Are you accessing a running X
server? Is this happening for all kinds of sessions?

3. What desktop environment are you using locally?

4. What's the keyboard configuration in the x2goclient session

5. is this happening for new sessions, on reconnect or both?

6. what's the version of nxagent on the server (run 'xprop -root | grep NX'
inside the session)?

7. please post the content of /etc/x2go/x2goagent.options

8. on the server you have ~/.x2go/C-something, which is the session dir.
You'll find a file called "options" there. Please post that file. You can
also scan the session.log for hints what might be going wrong with the
keyboard configuration.

9. Has this worked before for you?
