​During this launch attempt, it seems the client is getting a bit further
along than before, but still not to the point of launching something​. Here
is how far things are getting now:

With some debug within the x2gostartagent I can tell that it is executing
this script and now seems to be getting past this point. I have turned the
logging level of the server to debug and here is the output I am seeing
during a connection attempt:

Oct 29 08:02:33 oddjob /usr/bin/x2golistsessions[12799]: x2golistsessions
has been called with no option
Oct 29 08:02:34 oddjob /usr/bin/x2gostartagent: x2gostartagent called with
options: 1440x900 adsl 16m-jpeg-9 unix-kde-depth_32 us pc105/us 1 D GNOME
Oct 29 08:02:34 oddjob /usr/bin/x2gostartagent: client announced itself as
Oct 29 08:02:34 oddjob /usr/bin/x2gosessionlimit[12835]: x2gosessionlimit
has been called
Oct 29 08:02:34 oddjob /usr/bin/x2golistsessions[12838]: x2golistsessions
has been called with options: --all-servers

I added some more debug messages to x2golistsessions and am seeing that
this script seems to finish execution (I reach deubg statements just before
closing syslog).

Another note is that even after restart of the client and server PCs, this
is not working. Also, If I keep my client open for a long time after it
"hangs", it will sometimes eventually bring up the remote session. The time
it takes for it to do this is on the order of magnitude of many hours.
