Hi there,

here is a little --- what seems to me like a --- bug report...

SERVER (Ubuntu Lucid)
x2goserver-home: 3.0.1-1
x2goserver-one: 3.0.1-1
x2goserver: 3.0.1-5

CLIENT (Debian Lenny; Ubuntu Karmic/Lucid)
x2goclient: 3.0.1-5

When logging in to the x2goserver with an account that is not in the  
x2gousers group on the x2goserver, I see hundreds of sudo errors in  
the auth.log file on the server (about 50-60, every 5 seconds):

Jun 23 13:12:46 <hostname> sudo:     <uid> : no tty present and no  
askpass program specified ; TTY=unknown ; PWD=<homedir> ; USER=root ;  
COMMAND=/usr/bin/x2gopgwrapper insertsession <pid> <fqdn.hostname>  

To my understanding, the x2goserver should just say: ,,NO, you are not  
supposed to login, as you are not in the x2gousers group on this  
server... Goodbye and Farewell...'' Instead the x2goclient waits  
endlessly for a login...

BTW: once you add a user to the x2gousers group the login from the  
x2goclient proceeds as normal...
