I actually just tested this on a Debian jessie X2Go Server.

I use MATE desktop, so I launched gnome-control-center inside the MATE  
session from the command line.

If GLX in x2goagent is disabled [1], then gnome-control-center  
launches successfully.

If GLX in x2goagent is enabled, then gnome-control-center crashes,  
because it cannot load clutter. This, however, I consider a bug in  
gnome-control-center. If a GNOME application cannot load clutter due  
to lack of sufficient GLX support, the GNOME application (i.e.,  
gnome-control-center) should fall-back to a non-GLX mode.

Could you provide the exact steps for reproducing this issue?
