Hi Mike,

what about the following solution / proposal for the x2goruncommand script:

# run logout scripts

FIX_XAUTH=`ls -Z $HOME/.Xauthority | egrep default_t`
if test -n $FIX_AUTH
  /usr/bin/chcon unconfined_u:object_r:xauth_home_t:s0 $HOME/.Xauthority

test -r /etc/x2go/x2go_logout && . /etc/x2go/x2go_logout


this fixes the selinux file permission in case, it it set to 
It works on my system.
