OK, so I started over.  I am using 2 machine, one is a laptop, the other a 
desktop.  Both of these machine worked with each other before I upgaded from 
the older version.  Both machines run debian wheezy 64 /w kde.  The desktop 
(TV) is hardwired to my local network, the laptop (BumbleBee) uses wifi.  I am 
able to ssh back and forth between machine manually with out issue and run gui 
apps from cli.

To start over I uninstalled both winswitch and xpra from both machines.  Then 
I manually deleted the .winswitch and .xpra folders from users ~/user.  Then I 
reinstalled both packages and reinstall the dependant packages from synaptic.  
Neither machine has selinux installed.

I have not modifed the default config except to enable debug.  I get no joy 
trying to run apps remotly.  The servers seem to connect to each other 
correctly.  I am able to remotly launch guvcview (webcam app) on the desktop 
from the laptop, but I am still seeing the app briefly appear on the laptop 
then dissapear with a popup message that I can not interpret.  I also don't 
see that message text in the logs.

If I go over to the desktop the app is there and I can reconnect to it and it 
displays just fine locally.

I have tared the config files and log files off both machine and they can be seen 
if you have issues reading them let me know and we can try something else.

If it ain't broke tweek it
