[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: x2goclient
Version: 4.0.2.1

Client OS: Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS
Application: x2goclient 4.0.2.1-0~614~ubuntu14.04.1

Server OS: Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS
Application: x2goserver 4.0.1.15-0~847~ubuntu14.04.1

When I invoke x2goclient and my home dir has accented characters (as in
josé),
nxproxy fails with a Loop: PANIC! error.

Undeniably, Linux applications do not expect path names to have non-English
characters.
Imho, nxproxy should report such abnormalities to allow applications that
call it
to exit gracefully or report to the user the cause of the problem.

Debug output is attached.
