I use xpra occasionally and I do it with pleasure. tmux for X done right!
Frankly speaking I haven't tested some few latest releases, but I have
winswitch deb repo in my apt/sources, so I have always an up-to-date
version at work and at home. I use up-to-date wheezy amd64 in both

Today, I needed my xpra and it failed hard for the first time.

Before I had few cases when I couldn't attach it after
attach-at-work,attach-at-home iterations, but stopping, terminating or
killing xpra remnants followed by restarting always allowed me to use
xpra again.

Not today. It crashes right after showing windows due to attach
command, every time.
Connecting to empty session doesn't cause any problem, until I start
xcalc for instance.

*** glibc detected *** /usr/bin/python: free(): invalid pointer:
0x0000000001bf55f0 ***
======= Backtrace: =========
======= Memory map: ========

Second attach is unsuccessful, I don't get the following message at all:

2013-02-15 00:44:41,603 Attached to ssh:blahblahblah:100 (press
Control-C to detach)
