So here is the fix for VcXsrv (which is bundled with X2Go Client) that
I ported from Cygwin XWin:

Here is a test build of VcXsrv :
(I do not make a test build of X2Go Client available yet, so you'll
have to test it via the "X.Org Server settings" GUI in X2Go Client.)

And here is the issue against VcXsrv (X2Go/Arctica Builds):

Read that issue for more details on why this bug happens with X2Go
(and its component nx-libs.) Discussion over the details of the patch
should be discussed there (or in a PR.)

However, If I release X2Go Client (or an update to
with this fix, then sessions started on X2Go Client for Windows and earlier can not be resumed on the new version.
This could be very disruptive to users.

Does anyone have any thoughts on this dilemma?
