Hi Mike,

thank you very much for the proposal, where I could fix the problem for 
my system.
But I still have to think, how to make a permanent workaround in the 
x2gostartagent script.

- if I use icewm windowmanager with selinux and x2goserver / x2goclient 
everything is fine and the .Xauthority file has the right permissions
- if I use the kde or gnome  windowmanager the .Xauthority permissions 
will be modified to the wrong permissions
- when the home directory is on a nfsserver with no selinux installed 
and the x2goserver system uses selinux, there is no problem at all.
  Trying to fix the selinux permissions will give the error message 
'Operation not supported'

So I think, it is a problem of the kde and gnome windowmanager.
For the kde windowmanager, I put a chcon statement at the end of the 
/usr/bin/startkde script.
I'm still looking for a workaround for the gnome windowmanager.
