Hi Mike,
    I've done some more testing. I tried running Questasim on the 
cluster controller node (not on one of the cluster machines) and it was 
just as bad.
Again x2goagent was consuming up to 70% CPU, which was slowing window 
re-draws right down.

I ran strace -p pid where pid was the process ID of x2go agent, and 
captured a log. Here is a short extract:

Process 14310 attached - interrupt to quit
ioctl(7, FIONREAD, [0])                 = 0
write(7, "\2\"\0\0\0\0\377\377", 8)     = 8
ioctl(7, FIONREAD, [0])                 = 0
ioctl(7, FIONREAD, [0])                 = 0
select(8, [7], [], NULL, {5, 0})        = 1 (in [7], left {4, 998540})
ioctl(7, FIONREAD, [13])                = 0
read(7, "\32\r\22\270#`A\2\0\0\0\377\377", 65536) = 13
ioctl(7, FIONREAD, [0])                 = 0
ioctl(7, FIONREAD, [0])                 = 0
write(7, "\2\"\0\0\0\0\377\377", 8)     = 8
ioctl(7, FIONREAD, [0])                 = 0
ioctl(7, FIONREAD, [0])                 = 0
select(8, [7], [], NULL, {5, 0})        = 1 (in [7], left {4, 995499})
ioctl(7, FIONREAD, [13])                = 0
read(7, "\32\r\22\270#`A\2\0\0\0\377\377", 65536) = 13

ioctl(7, FIONREAD, [0])                 = 0
write(7, "\2\"\0\0\0\0\377\377", 8)     = 8
ioctl(7, FIONREAD, [0])                 = 0

ioctl(7, FIONREAD, [13])                = 0
read(7, "\32\r\22\270#`A\2\0\0\0\377\377", 65536) = 13

I've got 270K(!) of this if there's some way to upload an attachment,
