You can ignore this message, I've added it to the FAQ:

I'll take a guess and you probably have winswitch installed and running
too, right?
What happened is that it has captured your xpra sessions and password
protected them so it can export them to other machines safely.
You can change this behaviour by editing:
(and then restart winswitch)

Or you can stop winswitch whilst you run your xpra tests from the
command line.
