 +     - src/​onmainwindow.{cpp,​h}:​ don't error out directly if starting the X.Org
 +       ​Server failed on Windows. Instead, try starting it three times, each
 +       time with a higher DISPLAY offset. On busy client machines, several
 +       ​clients raced for the sockets previously and often failed to start. Also
 +       check if the server binary actually is still alive before doing the TCP
 +       ​connection checks. A dead server won't be able to listen on a socket in
 +       the first place.
 +     - {src/​{onmainwindow.{cpp,​h},​help.cpp},​man/​man1/​x2goclient.1}:​ add new
 +       ​option --xserver-start-limit,​ replacing the formerly hardcoded limit of
 +       three tries.
 +     - copy-deps-win32.bat:​ update to 20180615-1 Cygwin bundle, shipping with
 +       a further modified OpenSSH Server version at 7.7p1-1-x2go1 and without
 +       ​chgrp.
 +     - src/​onmainwindow.cpp:​ disable private host key permissions check in
 +       ​OpenSSH Server on Windows. Fixes: #1156.

-[[https://​github.com/​ArcticaProject/​nx-libs/​issues/​600|nx-libs issue 600]] When you connect to an x2go server with nx-libs 3.6 beta (3.5.99.x) rather than nx-libs 3.5.0.x stable, you would likely experience the Desktop flashing when maximizing window. (Despite the title of the issue, it can be experienced with a single screen/​monitor on Windows.) Many Linux distros have adopted ​nx-libs 3.6 beta, such as Fedora 28 & Ubuntu 18.04 . (x2goserver 4.1.0.0 added support for nx-libs 3.6 beta, so it is correlated with it.)+[[https://​github.com/​ArcticaProject/​nx-libs/​issues/​600|nx-libs issue 600]] When you connect to an x2go server with nx-libs 3.6 beta (3.5.99.x) rather than nx-libs 3.5.0.x stable, you would likely experience the Desktop flashing when maximizing window.
