I believe you're hitting this bug which is high on my list:

Below, you're saying that  your client is Windows 7.
How can you restart the X server since there isn't one on MS Windows?
Unless you're talking about the Cygwin X11 server - but I don't see how
you would get an xpra build to use X11 on win32: xpra on MS Windows uses
"native" GTK-win32.

I assume you mean Cygwin SSH client here?
Can you paste the command line that you use for connecting? (I can't
remember the last time I tried to use xpra with Cygwin's ssh instead of
plink - good to know it still works)

Sorry about that - fixed.


PS: for those unlucky Trac administrators hitting landing on this
message because of the obscure 1.0.2 Trac upgrade issue, here's the fix
(which I could not find documented anywhere): you must ensure this is in
your [components] section since the "UsernamePermCheck" is now required
by default:
acct_mgr.register.usernamepermcheck = enabled
