I assume that this GNOME polkit daemon is from GNOMEv2(?).

Any chance you can provide me with a link to the source code?

Before you do this, please check if the X2Go Session is using  
x2goserver-xsession and if the session is launched (via xinitrc or so)  
with prefixed ck-launch-session.

In Debian/Ubuntu, this is handled via  
/etc/X11/Xsession.d/90consolekit. Something equivalent should exist  
for RHEL-6 based distros.

Mike
