You seem to have forgotten to do that, but I caught it anyways :)

We experience the same problem with x2goclient on Mac, also in broker mode.
It has been there since we started out with it, and yes, my guess is that
bug #139 covers it.
To us, it is only a minor issue, since our users don't log off and on again
a lot. They start x2goclient on their Macs, which I have customized to be
in broker mode and contact our broker. They just type their username and
password, and the only available session is chosen automatically for them.
When they log out, it is normally because they are done using x2go, and
thus close x2goclient completely. Therefore they never experience the
problem with the unresponsive text fields.

I doubt that I can convince my boss to let me give you a Mac, but I am
going to start bugging him about us providing at least some financial aid
to get you guys som Mac hardware. No promises, but I am going to talk to
him about it, when he gets back from vacation.

Dirk: I am still fairly new at running an x2go solution, but have been
running a two node terminalserver solution with NoMachine for years. We are
currently switching to x2go with a load balancing broker, thin clients
using the x2gothinclient environment and a bunch of users logging on from
their Macs at home or on the road. I would be glad to provide you with
information about getting such a setup up and running, and about how I have
customized our x2goclient.app to work seamlessly in our environment.
