Indeed. Note that my fix was pushed on 2015-02-02, while Schlomo
installs the EPEL6 version from 2015-02-01.

For what it's worth, our distribution server packages.x2go.org does only
provide the newest version, which for EPEL6 is

We do not cache old versions. The user is responsible to make sure the
cache and package is up to date.

Nightlies are not guaranteed to work or be bug free. Those packages are
built through continuous integration and may be broken at any given
time, although we try to minimize any state of brokenness.

Our servers do not provide this version anymore. I have checked the
"archive" and everything is fine.

Package: x2goserver

RPM Upgrades of existing installations fail because of a broken %pre
script in the x2goserver-common RPM:

The bad script is this:

if getent group x2gouser 1>/dev/null; then
    groupadd -r x2gouser
if getent passwd x2gouser >/dev/null; then
    useradd -r -g x2gouser -d /var/lib/x2go -s /sbin/nologin \
            -c "x2go" x2gouser

It should have a ! in the if clause to only call groupadd / useradd if the group or user DO NOT EXIST!!

Don't you test upgrades???
