Package: x2gobroker
Severity: important

Since X2Go Server, all session relevant files moved to  
/tmp/.x2go-<user>. In $HOME/.x2go there only is a symlink to the  
session dir on /tmp.

This change breaks x2gobroker-agent in LOCAL mode (evoked on the  
broker host itself, assuming all session files are available).

In LOCAL mode, x2gobroker-agent is evoked on the X2Go Broker host  
itself and assumes that it can access all session files in  

But what it finds is a dangling symlink to a non-existent C-<session>  
dir in /tmp/.x2go-<user>.

The wanted session dir, of course, can only be found on
