Using x2goclient from Windows 10 1909 (problems also in prior versions) 
to connect to remote XFCE session.


When copy+paste WITHIN Windows, the paste loses all formatting. E.g. I 
copy a cell in Excel to another cell, only the text is copied, not the 
background color of the cell. Or copying from Word to OneNote, only the 
text is copied, no images, no advanced formatting like headers, etc.

As soon as I close the x2goclient copy+paste in Windows works again with 
formatting information pasted correctly.

Already tried to disable copy+paste between Windows and x2goclient 
completely, didn't fix the problem.

Thank you in advance for any help and best regards,
