[X2go-dev] Seemless sessions using GDM?

Hello everyone.

On my home desktop, I use Ubuntu 10.04. I use it for personal stuff
and I use it for business, but then using an x2go terminal server. And
I'm very satisfied with that solution. However, yesterday, I tried
something new, and the result was 99% awesome. What I did, was to add
a new session type to GDM, which I called x2go. This session simply
runs x2goclient --geometry=fullscreen --session=x2go and some other
parameters. The x2go session uses a spesific user and key, so it
wouldn't be a good solution in all cases, but since I'm the only user
of this particular pc, it's not a problem for me.

Having setup the client to use a key for login, this means that when I
login as my x2go user in GDM, the only thing I see, is the x2go
session. This is really very nice, but when I log out from the x2go
session, I end up with the x2go window. It would be very nice if I
could find a way to exit the application when I log out from the x2go
session. Is this possible today, or must it be coded?
