Thanks for reporting this.

I encounter such inconsistencies, as well, when working with X2go  
client. I have added a work around to python X2go to catch these  
irregularities. This workaround was put together at times that  
x2goserver was not yet a Git project (thus, at a time I had no  
influence on the server code myself).

You do not seem like having an idea, yet? If you can find a hint, let  
me know. I may find time to look at code more closely on  

If you use pyhoca-gui and start it from the command line, you can  
encounter such issues in irregular intervals, as well. Whenever they  
occur, some output is shouted to stderr and you won't miss it...
