This is a packaging issue which I will have to iron out before release 
(it's not easy unfortunately - distro packaging really is a curse).

In the meantime:
cp /usr/bin/Xorg /usr/local/bin/Xorg
And use /usr/local/bin/Xorg in /etc/xpra/xpra.conf for the xvfb option.

Any suggestions on how to obtain a non-suid Xorg binary from the 
installed suid one would be most welcome.
