Very great so far!!!

Alex has already patched/upgraded x2goagent to version 3.5.0.x by  
incorporating nxagent 3.5.0-x. Unfortunately, not yet in Git.

The current plan is (telephone session with Heinz yesterday) that he  
will send me his work at the weekend and I would then upload his code  
to x2goagent.git (if that is fine by you). Maybe then, we should take  
individual looks at the freenx patches?!?

Would that work for you? Sorry for overlaps at this point!!!
