[X2Go-Dev] Folder sharing in ThinClient mode - server-side situation after umount

over on X2Go-User one of our new users is wondering why in ThinClient
mode, X2Go doesn't remove the empty directory on the server when
portable media is removed from the ThinClient.

In other words, we see a ~/media/disk/KINGSTON folder on the server for
a Kingston usb flash disk, and we can see all of its contents.

Unplugging the device leads to an empty ~/media/disk/KINGSTON folder,
but the folder "KINGSTON" itself is not removed.

Is this intentional, or an oversight?  Or technically impossible?
Or is something wrong with the user's server/client setup?

Or is the user merely "holding it wrong", i.e. would they have to use a
server-side umount command like "fusermount -u mountpoint" instead of
simply removing the media from the ThinClient without warning?

Kind Regards,
