Steps to reproduce:
  1. Install and setup WSL2 based on
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/wsl/install (exact component
versions can be found at https://github.com/microsoft/WSL/issues/8706)
  2. Install x2goserver in WSL2 based on
  3. Install x2goclient on host Windows system based on
  4. Download tarball from
https://github.com/tmux/tmux/releases/tag/3.3a (currently latest
version, older version i.e. 3.2a installed via `sudo apt install tmux`
also encounters same problem)
  5. Install tarball in WSL2 based on instructions at
  6. Start session on x2goclient and run `tmux`
  7. Run `wslvar -S` within tmux session
  8. Run `wslpath -w "${HOME}"` within tmux session

Expected results:
  1. output of `wslvar -S` within tmux should be
Name                           Value
----                           -----
ALLUSERSPROFILE                C:\ProgramData
windir                         C:\Windows
ZES_ENABLE_SYSMAN              1
  2.  output of `wslpath -w "${HOME}"` within tmux should be

Actual results:
  1. Running `wslvar -S` within tmux running on x2goserver yields no output
  2. Running `wslpath -w "${HOME}"` within tmux on x2goserver returns
`wslpath: /home/<username>: Invalid argument`

Further information:
As mentioned at
running tmux in WSL2 shell first then on x2goserver causes `wslvar -S`
and `wslpath -w "${HOME}"` to work properly but they break if tmux is
run on x2goserver first
