There should be a logfile on the session on the server, usually in
~/x2go. Can you check for suspicious messages there?

I think it is worth trying the upcoming 3.6.x version of the nx-libs.
Unfortunately you need to build the rpm yourself. Please clone the
repo at https://github.com/ArcticaProject/nx-libs.git and use the
specfile in there to build an rpm.

Yeah, have come over this problem, too. But as I am not involved in
the x2goclient development or packaging I cannot help here. Anyone?

Oh, that shifts focus back to windows again. Mike#2, any ideas?

answer your question (and isolate it to windows).  If not let me know
and I will pursue getting 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...

If you google for that message you'll find that this is from metacity
and only a harmless warning. However, I am wondering why the app cann
be resized at all then.

Do you see the resizing problem when using another window manager or
even desktop? Can you sucessfully resize using xdotool? Can you run
xwininfo on the application window and post the output?

No, let's try other stuff first.
