Some xpra processes are used to probe existing sessions (and obviously
running them) and I believe that sometimes they are having difficulties
terminating (problem with file descriptors I believe). Re-starting the
server (and/or client) generally fixes this (and you should *not* be
losing any sessions, if you do then that's a separate bug).
I'll see if this is easily reproducible and try to fix it for the next
