Tested on CentOS 5 and 6 successfully. CentOS 7 seems to not include the 
GNOME Flashback components, so I couldn't test there.

I wasn't able to get X2Go working at all on OpenSuSE 11. :/ Looks like 
packages.x2go.org doesn't carry 11 any more? Works on OpenSuSE 12, 
although the GNOME fallback desktop seems to be affected by a few bugs. 
I didn't test OpenSuSE 13, but glancing at the repo it looks like they 
retired the fallback/gnome-panel packages like RHEL7 did.

The patch I sent before exports XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP needlessly in 
environments that have no value for it (e.g. older GNOME 2). Should be 
harmless, but even so I'm attaching a corrected patch and interdiff 
since the previous one.

The approach probably extends to non-GNOME desktops too, but I don't 
know when I would have time to go through and test them all...
