[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: x2goclient
Severity: minor

With brokerage enabled, the broker can mediate an autologin mechanism  
from X2Go Client to a given (brokeraged) server.

The mechanism is this:

  o broker deploys a public key in ~/.x2go/authorized_keys on
    X2Go Server
  o X2Go Client receives the corresponding private key
  o (the above is already flawed, no private keys should be sent
    over networks, I will file another bug for that)
  o in SSHd, the ~/.x2go/authorized_keys must be configured as
    potential place for authorized_keys file

If the last step is forgotten, SSH authentication with X2Go Client  
against the X2Go Server fails.

If that fails, my expectation would be a fall-back to username /  
password authentication.

But what happens, is: X2Go Client "gets stuck" in the session startup  
procedure (it's not a real freeze), it does not return to the login  
dialog widget anymore. Options remaining: closing X2Go Client and  

I stumbled over this because of a configuration in SSH daemon on one  
of my test boxes.
