[X2go-dev] home dirs with x2go

hi list-folks,

what kind of home dir setup does x2go expect/support.

1. Scenario I tried...
My default scenario: homes rest on an NFS server, homes are mounted as  
NFS homes with kerberos security (sec=krb5i or sec=krb5p).

Everything seems to work fine apart from x2go printing (I mentioned  
this issue in another posting).

2. Scenario I tried...
I have two x2goservers, tied together with postgres, but without  
explicit x2go  LDAP tweaks. Each server has its own homes, only real  
data (no configs) is shared via Autofs-NFS in /home/<user>/MyDocuments.

This means: /home/<user> on <host1> is different from /home/<user> on <host2>.

x2go printing now works (no file copying onto NFS share as root  
anymore), but x2golistsessions throws a bug:

mike at vidar:~$ x2golistsessions --all-servers
,,/home/<client-user>/.x2go/C-<server-user>-53-1277893552_stDLXDE_dp24/session.log\'' kann nicht zum Lesen geöffnet werden: No such file or

Question: which scenarios have you already implied, which may be  
missing or are untested? What home dir setup is most preferred from  
the developers' point of view?
