Thanks for the details, the bug has been fixed:
http://xpra.org/trac/changeset/16575

This only affected MS Windows clients connecting in SSH mode using the
launcher (which means there might be another harmless bug still waiting
to be fixed)

There was a Mac OS SSH fix just a few days ago, so I will make a 2.1.1
release, hopefully by the end of the week.

In the meantime, you can downgrade to 2.0.x or use the fresh 2.1.1 RC
builds found here:
http://xpra.org/beta/windows/
or for Mac OS:
http://xpra.org/beta/MacOS/

Cheers
Antoine
