Hi Stephane, I'm the new Win32 package maintainer for X2Go Client.

I see that you worked around this issue by copying over VcXsrv's fonts folder:

I've experienced this bug too with ClearCase 8.0.0's "xclearcase" GUI.
It is a very old UNIX/Linux GUI and it uses motif.

My successful workaround was to both install a bunch of fonts packages
server-side (including international fonts,) and to copy over the
fonts directory.

Still, I believe that we should take the same approach that NX did and
provide a seperate setup.exe containing the extra fonts. Unless there
are any objections, that will officially be on my to do list as the
win32 package maintainer.

Note that I do not want to include the fonts in the main X2Go Client
setup.exe because:
1. They are 4,673 files, which would add a lot to the installation time
2. They are 32MB compressed with 7-zip, so they would add that much
space or more. (X2goclient's setup .exe is only 23MB).

For reference to others who need to copy fonts:
- X2Go Client uses VcXsrv
- X2Go Client and use VcXsrv
