Hi Marco,

with this mail I split up your report into to separate bug reports.  
One for x2goclient, one for x2godesktopsharing...

Please provide a patch for what you did.

Please improve your patch so it is not a workaround anymore. I guess,  
I agree with you, that the X2Go Client window should pop up, if there  
are more than one sharable desktops to select from. If there is only  
one sharable desktop, this should be auto-selected. Can you code that  
into X2Go Client, please?

This part will be handled in a separate bug. I will reply to this once  
the separate bug is created in X2Go BTS.

Let's try to get your needs into upstream code...
