Ancient bug which has been fixed a long long time ago, but completely
ignored in Debian and Ubuntu. And there are dozens more like this one.

Don't use the broken and outdated packages from Ubuntu or Debian and it
will be fine.

With an up to date version you can just do:
xpra start --start=xterm ssh:YOURHOST:DISPLAY
(the DISPLAY part is optional on other distros too)
