Thank you for replying! What it does is it kills the client connection but
the session is still running. When I reconnect it tries to resume and will
usually show the desktop for a few seconds and then the connection is killed
again. If I do this enough times (3-5 times) it will resume successfully but
the window is not resized and I still cannot resize it, but the session is
otherwise working fine.
I cannot get the linux x2go client (126.96.36.199) to work because of this issue
I don't use the linux client so this is not an issue for me but for this
troubleshooting I can try to get it working.
I did try this test with a much older version (188.8.131.52) of the client on linux
(which does work on RHEL6) and I was able to resize in windowed mode
successfully. That may be enough to answer your question (and isolate it to
windows). If not let me know and I will pursue getting 184.108.40.206 linux client
working on RHEL6. According to the bug reports, I would have to update libssh
to >= 0.6 but that is problematic on RHEL6 (apparently it's unsupported because
I can't even download it from RHN for RHEL6 but I can for RHEL7). I will have
to install some newer packages in parallel with the older versions and update
LD_LIBRARY_PATH when using x2goclient...
As far as giving you the application, unfortunately this application is
proprietary and I do not own it so I cannot give it to you. I know I am not
giving you much to help me troubleshoot this and I do apologize for that. If
you simply don't have enough information to troubleshoot this problem I
One clue I found in the user's .xsession-x2go-errors log is an entry like this:
Window manager warning: Window <hex> (<RESIZING APP NAME>) sets an MWM hint
indicating it isn't resizable, but sets min size <X1>x<Y1> and max size of
<X2>x<Y2>; this doesn’t make much sense.
This seems like the smoking gun, based on my limited understanding of what is
going on. I could try and write a stub application (in motif which this
problem application is written in) and attempt to reproduce this problem. That
code I could give you. If or when that is worthwhile let me know and I can
start on that.
Thank you again for your help.

What exactly happens when you try to resize the app? Can we somehow get hold of
the application? Does it work with a Linux client instead of windows?
Also, have you tried resizing the app window using the xdotool command
