We are seeing issue with <Tab> and p not working in XFCE 4.8.0 and 4.12.1 with
OSX x2goclient  This appears to be due to the default mapping of
<Super><Tab> and <Super>p to keyboard shortcuts by xfce and no <Super> key
defined by XQuartz.  XFCE bug is https://bugzilla.xfce.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10760

A workaround for the OSX client is to define the Super keys in ~/.Xmodmap:

keycode 63 = Super_L
keycode 71 = Super_R

or similar.
