Okay, Mike#2 provided the build
(http://code.x2go.org/releases/binary-win32/x2goclient/previews/4.0.2.1/x2goclient-4.0.2.1-pre03-setup.exe),
I tested it, bug is gone.
So we have identified the two commits that introduced it.

@Mike#1:
1) Please remove them from the official tree for 4.0.2.1, as per your
previous offer to do so.

2) Please discuss the proper way to re-introduce them in a way that
doesn't influence startup time negatively with Alex and possibly Mihai.
Mihai seemed to have a few suggestions as to how to solve the issue - me
being anything but a C/C++ expert, I can't comment on their quality,
though my gut feeling is that he may be right - after all, he has proven
to be an able coder previously (Cowbytes and Endians ...).
