[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Some progress happened in private and I should have been updating this bug
report a while ago.

It seems we dropped #883 from the conversation list a while ago accidentally.

Alex has committed a few changes in
that were subsequently fixed up by

These basically start VcXsrv with -nodecoration instead of -multiwindow when a
"fake" fullscreen session on one display is requested (i.e., when the window is
not rootless and "use whole display" was set in session settings.)

Mike#2 has tested the changes and came up with these results:

Screenshots 3 and 4 only relate to Cygwin's XWin server.

Testing looked good, but another issue resurfaced:

Thus, there's one more change required within the client's global settings
regarding the usage of an external X server.

At the same time, I'd suggest removing the "start X-Server on X2Go Client start"
option completely, because the different session types require differently
started X server instances.
