0.10.0 is not even in beta yet... 0.9.0 is likely to work better.
That said, I don't think it will solve any of these errors.

Sorry, not installed the latest Ubuntu yet, not particularly keen on
finding out what they have managed to break this time around.

Sounds like these permissions issues are to do with Xvfb/Xdummy rather
than xpra itself. Trying the other option may work around that.

I've added this to my TODO list.
