In case you upgrade and you still hit the same connection error:
"Error: failed to receive anything, not an xpra server?"
when doing a remote start like "xpra start ssh://user@HOST/ --start=app"
You may need to first remove the corrupted run-xpra script on the server
(it will then be re-generated):
rm $XDG_RUNTIME_DIR/xpra/run-xpra
Or you can also just run "xpra start --start=app" once, directly from a
shell on the server.
