[X2Go-User] Lightdm invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1

Hi there,

I have a problem with a machine that rebooted due to power outage.
Debian, lightdm, XFCE.

If I want to use the X2go, I need to login locally in lightdm on the 
server first - if I don't, I get an error of "invalid 
MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1: keyxwininfo: error: unable to open display :0" when 
I try to login thru x2go remotely.

Does anyone have an idea how to make it work without first logging in 
(=driving there) locally?

ps aux | grep X
root      1353  0.2  0.7 368172 59736 tty7     Ssl+ 18:25   0:01 
/usr/lib/xorg/Xorg :0 -seat seat0 -auth /var/run/lightdm/root/:0 
-nolisten tcp vt7 -novtswitch

  xauth list
(returns nothing)
