Hi Mike: 

Please find attached the output from strace using the latest version of the X2go client for the Mac. I again encountered the same issue of the error messages popping up re openssh-server not running, and a File Not Found. 

Hope this helps to narrow down this issue! 

Thank you

Can you cross-check the observed problem with latest X2Go Client [1]??? 

Can you launch X2Go Client from a terminal on Mac OS X and use a tool 
like strace (if that exists) and check its output for pointers to 
file-not-found errors? 

That would be really helpful for tracking down this issue.
