ok, I figured out how to do this Xdummy / Xvfb change now ;)

I changed the xvfb= line in /etc/xpra/xpra.conf on the host by
commenting / uncommenting the appropriate lines, did the xpra start,
and now I'm using Xvfb instead of Xdummy and it is working correctly
on Ubuntu 13.04.

Thank you for your help.
